The Five FUBARs

The USA is a runaway train with a dead man in the engineer’s seat. The conductor goes through the cars assuring the passengers that everything is fine. . . never mind the screeching wheels on the curves. . . or the blinding strobe effect of low sunlight passing through the trees out the window at a hundred and forty mph. . . or the bump that made half the stuff in the overhead luggage rack jump out. More than half the people on-board are at tachycardia levels of fright — some are wailing — but the other less than half just remain fixed on their phones and laptop screens. They can’t be bothered to look out the window. . . .

     Okay, that’s a metaphor. But if you’re a citizen of our country and care about it, these are the matters you’d better pay attention to, because they are all going off the rails:

     The war in Ukraine. We started it in 2014 to mess with Russia and Russia is going to finish it. Who knows what our real motives were. A resource grab? A desperate ploy to erase our national debt by creating a global fiasco? Sheer psychopathic hatred of this Putin fellow? We can’t bring ourselves to acknowledge the failure of this ill-conceived venture. Instead, our feckless allies in Europe are foolishly rattling their sabers, apparently forgetting that you don’t bring a sword to a nuclear missile fight.

     Mr. Macron in France affects to offer up his army for slaughter on the blood-soaked plains of Ukraine, just as the Ukrainians offered up a half a million of their young men so that Victoria Nuland could feel good about herself. Mr. Macron is insane, but the society he presides over is collectively insane, so perhaps he represents them well. Similarly, Olaf Scholz in Germany, whose top generals were caught on a leaked recording last week discussing their plan to blow up the Kerch Bridge that connects Crimea to Russia. Do you understand that this would be a direct attack on Russia, an act of War by NATO? And what the obvious consequence would be?

     The phantom government of “Joe Biden” is too weak and mindless to join any negotiation. Ukraine and Russia are up to some kind of cross-talk down in Riyadh with Prince MBS. Even Mr. Zelensky went down for a day, though video appears to show him coked-up, sniffling and snarfling, not a good sign. If ever there was a time to end this stupid conflict, it’s now, before the Russian election. After that, terms will only be more difficult for Ukraine, up to direct custodial supervision instead of remaining a nation. It was never any of our business (though the Biden family, BlackRock, and the CIA saw fabulous opportunity to profit there).

     Next is the border. You saw last year how the blob elite greeted the transfer of illegal immigrants to their happy little island of Martha’s Vineyard. (They were not amused by Governor DeSantis’s prank, and off-loaded the mutts post-haste.) But that same smug demographic doesn’t care if hundreds of thousands are distributed to the big cities, which are now fiscally destabilized by them to an extreme, probably to bankruptcy.

     Of course, that is not the main thing to worry about with what altogether amounts to millions of border-jumpers flooding our land. The main reason to worry is what the blob that invited them here intends for them to do, which, you may suspect, is to unleash mayhem in the streets, malls, stadiums, and upon our infrastructure just in time to derail the election — perhaps even to make war on us right in our homeland. The US government is paying for this whole operation, you understand, funneling our tax money to international cut-out orgs who set up the transfer camps in Panama, and buy the plane tickets for the mutts to cross the ocean, and coordinate with the Mexican cartels to shuttle this horde of mystery people among us to work their juju for the Democratic Party. The pissed-off-ness of the public has passed the red line on this treasonous scam.

      A third FUBAR is the lawfare campaign of the Democratic Party and its regime in power against the citizens of this land. This folder includes overt and obvious political prosecutions by DA’s and AG’s who make election promises to “go after” individuals without such niceties as probable cause. It includes the gigantic new scaffold of inter-agency censorship and propaganda. It includes the psychopathic struggle sessions mandated by “diversity and inclusion” policy. It includes election-rigging directed by the likes of Marc Elias and Norm Eisen, getting states to fiddle laws on voter ID and mail-in ballots. It includes the political protection of rogue groups ranging from looter flash-mobs to Antifa anarchists who bust up things and people and burn buildings down. It includes state officials who peremptorily kick candidates off the ballot. It includes a nakedly biased judiciary, and especially the use of the DC federal district court to punish people extralegally, unjustly, extravagantly, and cruelly. In short, lawfare is the complete perversion of law, and we-the-people are entreated by reprobate officials such as Merrick Garland and Letitia James to accept it.

    A fourth item on this list is the US economy which has been overwhelmed by maladministration of an overgrown monster bureaucracy, and the gross (perhaps fatal) mismanagement of the government’s money. The people of this land are not being allowed to do business, to find a livelihood, to transact fairly. “Joe Biden’s” shadow string-pullers are messing as badly with the oil and gas producers as they have messed with Ukraine. And they are doing it in pursuit of a laughable mirage: their “green new deal.”

     John Podesta, the “clean energy czar” who replaced the Haircut-in-search-of-a-brain called John Kerry, sits on a $370-billion slush fund that can be used to just dole out to anyone and everyone as a political patronage payoff, especially to janky “community” orgs and NGOs with fake agendas. This really just amounts to an asset-stripping operation that will leave the American people busted and with broken supply chains for everything. Instead of annual budgets, Congress raises the US debt ceiling by “continuing resolutions” to keep the government from shutting down. The national debt races to the $35-trillion mark. As interest rates on debt rise, our debt payments now exceed our military spending. You can be sure that our country will break down financially very soon.

     The capper on today’s list is the nation’s health, the racketeering system we’ve set up to care for it, and the public health agencies of the government that enabled the Covid-19 operation to happen. The CDC continues to push vaccines that have killed millions of Americans and more millions around the world, and has probably compromised the well-being of millions more going forward. Corporate medicine — that is, your doctor, and your hospitals — is a sinking Titanic of grift and chaos. Try to get an appointment to even see a doctor for an emergency. Try to avoid being bankrupted by your treatment. Try to get out of a hospital alive. Yeah, it’s that bad.

     The doctors have surrendered your trust in them with their lying and their bullshit. The current director of the CDC, Mandy Cohen and her predecessor, Rochelle Walensky, have knowingly presided over the mass killing and injuries imposed on the mRNA vaccinated. Hundreds of their deputies should be liable for prosecution, and so should many of the other prominent characters in the Covid Saga: Fauci, Birx, Collins, Baric, Bourla, Daszak, Califf, Woodcock, Hahn, and many more.

     What are we going to do about any of this? Return to the metaphor. The runaway train is still picking up speed. You can’t just jump off at 150 mph. If you’re one of the passengers watching this in horror, maybe you can decouple your car, or get the conductor to do it by any means necessary. Let’s say that each car behind the engine of this train is a state of the United States. Let the engine up front with the dead man at the controls ride that runaway to its terrible conclusion. Cut loose the cars behind it to take care of themselves, to slow down, get a grip on their situation, and make plans to find a better engine to pull the train. Decouple. Cut loose. It’s the only way.

    Decouple…..I get it.

    Taken to the extreme, the question becomes, “if the entire Federal Government disappeared tomorrow, what would happen in the short term…. and would we eventually be better off?”

    • JohnAZ March 4, 2024 at 9:49 am #

      Problem with secession is that amongst the monster government, there is legitimacy to some of its function, like national defense and national paymaster of legitimate payouts. The new countries will have to take up the functions that are legit, such as border control. The Blues will immediately go after the wealth of the Reds. What is happening in NYC is a good example right now.

      The government is paying for the immigration fiasco, using taxpayers money?

      Nope, only 60% of what is going on is paid by the taxpayer, the rest is fiat. Remember too that the border illicit trades are paying a chunk of the “Newcomers” bills. I would really like to know the average profile of a typical immigrant. Question one is are they getting jobs and contributing SSI and income taxes to the USA? IMHO, not one whit. Question two is how long do they stay on welfare, the fiat handouts provided by the Deep State?

      • Beryl of Oyl March 4, 2024 at 10:10 am #

        The various governments like to pretend it is still 1959, and your check is bing typed up, and presented to a higher-up for a signature in ink; and entered into a ledger with a number 2 pencil, and then some is licking a postage stamp and an envelope, to send it to your house.

        Hence the need to avoid a shutdown at all costs.

        New York’s governor is prioritizing illegal aliens for entry-level state jobs.

        You know they got that “newcomer” nonsense from a TV show, right?

        It sounds so sweet.

        • JohnAZ March 4, 2024 at 10:49 am #

          Biden actually called them Newcomers in a speech in Brownsville.

          These people are insane, period. No one in their right minds could conceive of the actions that we have seen out of ALL the actions taken by Biden’s Mob.

          As for Hochel, how will she explain this to all the Americans looking for work?

          • Beryl of Oyl March 4, 2024 at 10:57 am #

            She still hasn’t rescinded her sanctuary state edict.

          • Ron Anselmo March 4, 2024 at 2:26 pm #

            Joen – Hochul isn’t worried – she doesn’t give a fuck about explaining anything to anyone. It hasn’t affected her personally yet – so none of that matters. See how that works?

          • Ron Anselmo March 4, 2024 at 2:27 pm #

          Beryl without a SS Card or a birth certificate how can they get a government job?

          • Jarek March 4, 2024 at 1:20 pm #

            How do they get driver’s licenses? But they do. How do they vote in California? Some do, apparently.

            I assume they use some ID card from their home country in lieu of our cards. Or they give them something. As long as it’s official, it’s official!

          • Beryl of Oyl March 4, 2024 at 3:18 pm #

      • buckeyeman March 4, 2024 at 10:17 am #

        If you think that “fiat”payments are not being paidby the taxpayer then you do not understand “fiat”.

        • benr March 4, 2024 at 10:41 am #

          Yep just like we are now paying $1156 dollars PER illegal alien and that is per tax payer not per household.

          These border jumpers are costing on average $68,000 per incident to include people caught and returned just as fast as the feds can get it done.
          Which under the Biden regime is rarely if ever happening.

          • JohnAZ March 4, 2024 at 10:52 am #

            Quite the opposite, the Federal judge in Texas just tried to say that Texas law enforcement did not have the right to apprehend and deport illegals caught in Texas. Abbott et al have ignored the liberal SOB.

          • benr March 5, 2024 at 7:52 am #


            That’s a state I was saying federal agencies are having their hands tied by this regime.
            I applaud Texas for finally saying enough and taking matters into their own hands as well as the other states sending aid and support to Texas.

        • Paula D March 4, 2024 at 12:14 pm #

          Fiat means – by order of the king.

          If the king, or government, says that the money is legal tender, that is what makes it legal tender.

          You’ll find out when they announce that your money is no longer good here, you need a new fiat money, the CBCD.

          Just like the lockdowns, which were also fiat, you won’t be able to find a place that can ignore the order, and continue to accept your business.

        We’d be better off without any “national defense”. It didn’t prevent the inside job coup that took over this country somewhere along the line and now seems to have full power.
        Now when the term “US” is used, it no longer means what it used to. The US we grew up in no longer exists.

        • Paula D March 4, 2024 at 12:10 pm #

          Right? Why do people still blather on about “national defense”?

          They stood down on 9-11, they let the government be taken over by the Blob, and now they are killing Russians while ignoring the invasion on our southern border.

          But, but, but…we need protection!

          • TruthSeeker1986 March 4, 2024 at 12:48 pm #

            @Paula D

            That’s why I don’t mind saying “fuck the troops.” You just stand there and do nothing when you are suppose to be protecting the country from both domestic and foreign terrorism, but yet and still you fail to do your job. Just let them get away with it.

      • taijitu March 4, 2024 at 3:02 pm #

        The Disunited States of America

        “The problem with secession ” is the lack of will and power to make it reflect the true state of the Disunited States of America. Since we have to start somewhere, I propose:

        The Nation State of Ponzi: (The former New York)
        This new Nation shall have all the powers of traditional States with a few reservations:
        1- Permanent de-militarization. Prohibited from forming and arming an army, forming alliances with any other Nation, or funding military or private armies of any other Nation.
        2- Build a Beautiful Wall around the entire Nation State.
        3- Prohibit the State of Ponzi from issuing or accepting passports valid in any other Nation.
        4- Prohibit commerce between Ponzi and all regions outside the Wall except for agricultural products.

        The Nation State of Death Star: AKA Washington DC

        Once it is stripped of its reason for existence, Death Star could more or less peacefully return to a future as a truck garden.

        There are Seven other Natural States in the Disunited USA.

        Each will follow a different path to Statehood but if each holds to the path of total nuclear disarmament the world will be a safer place.

        1- The Heartland, (AKA Flyover Landia ) 2- The South, 3- Del Norte (formerly Texas) 4- North Sinola (formerly California) 5- New Britain) 6- The Nation State of Buttfuck (AKA San Francisco), and 7- Cascadia (once the anti-Woke Reformation triumphs)

      • CyberPass March 6, 2024 at 2:49 pm #

        Mechanic’s Illustrated (remember when they used to want to show you how to rebuild your engine, or other useful things), which went full NWO with its bogus coverage of 9-11 (and then spent an issue debunking “conspiracy theories”) also devoted an issue to the most un-handyman-like issue imaginable: the possibility of California’s seceding from the Union (!!)- this at a time when there actually were some conservatives there- and went into great detail about how the DOD would deploy our federal armed forces, including fighters and bombers, against the California National and Air National Guard (!!!). Jim, who writes a most incisive analysis of our present predicament, nevertheless goes off the rails himself when he suggests serial secessions.

    • Islander March 4, 2024 at 10:08 am #

      The Globalists would love to see the breakup of the USA.
      That is what this is all about.

      They have been trying to do this since 1776.

      That is why the FUBARs are happening.

      Who wins? International banks.

      See Tom Luongo, Alex Krainer, and others for more detailed explanations.

      • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 10:42 am #

        Bingo! The only country that has blocked the path of a “new world order” or one world government has been the United States. Take down the United States and there is none to stop their march to one world order.

        They are very effective in executing their plans while we Americans worry about our gender, get tattoos, pierce every orifice on our bodies, obsess over “The Voice” and tune into professional sports.

        How do we expect to save our Country when our own lives are in such disarray?

        • neurodoc March 4, 2024 at 11:17 am #

          All of this reminds of a citation from George Orwell’s “1984.” ‘The people will not revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to see what is happening.’ That was written in 1949. Damned insightful!!!

          However, a US currency failure and/or hyperinflation WILL make people look up from their screens and react strongly.

          • Night Owl March 5, 2024 at 6:09 pm #

            Orwell came out of British intelligence.

            He was well versed in these things.

        • Socrates-Detroit March 4, 2024 at 1:44 pm #


          Some Americans and a few American political figures have thwarted the fuller implementation of “one-world government measures” in the US.

          The biggest example being the 2nd Amendment. Many states still allow Americans to bear arms, to some extent. Also, we enjoy a little more freedom of speech than they do in Western Europe or China or most of the rest of the world–for what it’s worth.

          However, the US government, specifically US military, the military-industrial complex, and multiple intelligence services are the primary enforcement agents for “one-world government”.

          It isn’t France or Germany or Russia or China with the dollar privilege lording it over the world, and “sanctioning” others. Is it?

          The international bankers pull the US government’s strings. And you (and I) are paying all this stuff with our tax dollars directly, and indirectly with inflation, which is theft (and which also enriches the bankers).

          The question is (and I don’t know the answer), do the international bankers also own leaders of China as they do the leaders of the US? If they do, we are witnessing a professional wrestling type match between the US-led global “West” and the other 80% of the world’s population, where China is the de facto leader.

          If the Chinese leaders are NOT beholden to the WESTERN international bankers, then we are in an “West vs the rest” confrontation, where the hottest wars are in the Ukraine, in Palestine, and the economic sanctions (with have boomeranged on the hapless Europeans, and Germans, who are being “deindustrialized” now that their inexpensive and reliable Russian nat gas is a thing of the past…)

          In either case, I think the Five FUBARS (I would have added the US role in the on-going genocide of the Palestinians as a moral FUBAR, or as a subset of the first FUBAR, the US-provoked war in the Ukraine) nicely summarizes the ongoing decline of the US. Great summary!

          How that decline might affect the ability of the US government to meddle, cause wars, and “shape world events” remains to be seen. The elites must be quite confident the government can continue even as America implodes domestically. How else does one explain the borders? Inflation? Energy policy? The mRNA shots?

          It’s kind of ironic that the ENABLERS of US meddling, many of the hundreds of thousands of marines, soldiers, airmen, and sailors are generally conservative, “patriotic” types who are making possible a US military that serves an evil government dedicated to taking their freedoms and the freedoms of their families and loved ones here at home. A government that has singled out the core of America, white America (and I’m not even a WASP, and I’m bilingual and I say this) for punishment.

          So I have no sympathy for our “brave men and women”, or for anyone who enlisted once the PATRIOT Act (Goebbels himself could not have come up with such a name for a law that restricts our constitutional rights) became law, I don’t give damn how “patriotic” they are.

          We need a lot more Ed Snowdens and lot less cannon fodder. The latter seems to be happening–I read the Pentagon is alarmed at the anemic recruitment rates for white males (the ones most likely to actually FIGHT). Good. Why should they join?

          The military is led by a corrupt, crooked General Officer Corps made up of sycophants, who use their rank for lucrative jobs on top of their bloated pensions–look at our bloated Secretary of Defense! Genera, then on Board of Directors at Raytheon. Very impressive for a man who speaks soooo sloooowly.

          That’s today’s first rant. Gorgeous day in Michigan! Happy Monday!

          • TruthSeeker1986 March 4, 2024 at 2:20 pm #


            But if they can’t get white men to join, what is the point of all these war age men coming here for? Why not just use them to replace the white men, aren’t they not as capable of fighting? These guys come from countries like Latin America where the military is equally as corrupt as ours is, you would think they would be eager to join. That’s why they can’t stop or win the war on drugs against the cartels.

            If the Pentagon cared so much about white men, they never would have let leftist make up all that BS about blacks being 90% of the population. Television for starters is guilty of this, as a lot of crap on google search. What do they expect, white men to fight and die so they can then go back to dehumanizing them when the war is over? It’s almost like they are saying “you white men are only good when it comes to making us more money.”

          • taijitu March 4, 2024 at 3:39 pm #

            I’m betting the Pentagon is anything but alarmed. What better way to keep white men from forming strong character, body and mind with discipline, will to protect and ability to do so. And, I’ll bet that’s just what They don’t want.

          • Blackbird March 4, 2024 at 6:41 pm #

            Sox, you said what I was going to say – but in more detail.

            I think the international bankers are in control of China, or at least in league with China. They, through their control of US corporations and the US government, have been selling the US out to China since at least the ’80’s. It seems they have adopted the Chinese Communist model for their New World Order.

            In my opinion, the war in the Ukraine is not East vs. West, but an attempt by the bankers to destroy the economy of western Europe and isolate the US in order to bring about its collapse. Once western Europe and the US have been broken, they will be welcomed into China’s orbit with the other broken countries.

            Yes, it was a nice day up here in the Winter Wonderland. Hope you enjoyed it, looks like it will be awhile before we see another.

            Truth, “what is the point of all these war age men coming here”? To cause mayhem. To further bankrupt local, state, and national government for one thing. To drive down wages. To anger US citizens because the invaders are given preferential treatment over us. Some will probably be allowed to join the regular military – to guarantee that the US military will fire on its own citizens – but I expect most to operate as irregulars, robbing, raping, murdering. And when US citizens fight back, we will be the bad guys, in need of droning, or UN “peacekeepers”.

            Genocide is the intent and actual demonstrated actions of Hamas and the Islamists. Soc never misses an opportunity to insert his diametrically opposed to reality propaganda.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 4, 2024 at 8:25 pm #

            Mr. Abraham:

            “Genocide” may be Hamas’ STATED intent. I’ve never heard that.

            My understanding is they want “the removal of the Zionist entity” and their land back. That’s not genocide.

            Now, how that happens without a lot of bloodshed, I do not know. So, to indulge you, I will concede that Hamas wants “Israel eliminated”.

            The last time I looked, I didn’t see Hamas bombing blocks of Israeli buildings; I didn’t see Hamas blockading your Israeli friends. Gaza looks like Hamburg, circa 1945, not Tel-Aviv.

            Your friend Bibi told us how awful Oct 07 was, and said, “if it was the US, it would be as if hundreds of thousands of Americans were killed”. Boo-hoo!! Wah-wah!!!

            But INTENT is very different from ACTUAL ACTION.

            Here in the US of A, at least until now, just because A wants to kill B, and says “I hate B!” the state cannot arrest and incarcerate A, can they?

            But if X actually kills Y, and the state can prove it, the state can charge, convict, imprison, and even execute X.

            These simple concepts seem to elude you.

            You equate “intent” with “action”.

            Israel supporters use hypotheticals to justify and excuse criminal behavior as being “pre-emptive”. “Hamas is bad, all Hamas are Palestinian, therefore all Palestinians are bad, kill them all”.

            Never mind that the Israelis took their land in 1948–but that wasn’t enough! That’s why ISRAEL attacked in 1956 and in 1967. Because they wanted more. That’s why they always move the goal posts. That’s why the take the Palestinians’ water and land. Because they can.

            While Hamas may say (and many of them might actually believe it, though not the leaders) they want to eliminate Israel, they cannot, and they know it.

            But let’s look at Israel’s ACTIONS since Oct 07:

            Israel has killed about 30,000 Gazans out of what, 2.5 million. (we will leave out the 400 or so in the West Bank for another time. I’ll stick to Gaza for you).

            Most of the victims are females or children or men over 50.

            So, if that was the US, using Bibi’s math, that’s the equivalent of 4 million Americans.

            Most of the (already rather poor) housing stock has been destroyed.

            If the bombing stopped now, who knows how many will die from disease or starvation.

            But don’t worry, it won’t stop. Biden. Trump. McConnell. Schumer. The Clintons. They are all for whatever Israel wants.

            Israeli government officials have said PUBLICLY that the Gazans should leave, and other countries should take them. That’s a fact.

            Towards that end, the Israeli government is making the world’s largest open air concentration camp as uninhabitable as they can, while they can.

            So, when Israel kills thousands, destroys their habitat, and says, “they need to leave, other countries should take them”, Israel is looking to eliminate them. That’s genocide.

            They just want to make it seem as if “they left on their own”, as if that makes it OK.

            The Turks marched the Armenians into the desert, shot them or let them starve. The Germans used Zyklon B. Gaza is the Israeli approach. It’s more like the Turks, but with a lot more firepower.

            (BTW, your Israeli friends use AI, cameras, gates, facial recognition, to control West Bank Palestinians. And many CFNers see that stuff coming here. Well, Israeli “tech firms” are ready and eager to sell to the US government, or any government!)

            And of course, we are constantly lectured about the Holocaust, with six million Jewish victims, used to justify the expulsion (before) and extermination (now) of the Palestinians. That’s rich.

            Israel’s Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu, said Israel should nuke Gaza.

            Besides the bad optics, I’m sure your friends are concerned about the radiation blowing back onto them.

            And all that seems to me to be genocide–the removal of the Palestinians. First from Gaza, then from the West Bank.

            That’s what’s happening.

            The fact that the US is enabling the Israelis is also a reality.

            Even with the Five Fubars and America going backwards, our problems are very minor compared to the Gazans, at least today.

            But the US enabling the destruction of Gaza is only going to make the Five Fubars here worst. And I feel it’s important to make that connection.

            I really don’t know.

            I think the leadership thinks it can fight a “sterile” high tech war with drones piloted by college-educated “officers” outside Las Vegas, or with electronics jamming US adversaries.

            It’s kind of like corporate America. Go to the “site”, do your shift, go home, watch TV or surf the internet. A “smart military” using “high-tech” (to “limit US casualties”).

            That’s a different environment from being in marine/army infantry on the ground. ALL the US service branches know (or used to) that esprit de corps is very important, and in war, the soldier fights for his fellow soldier first.

            Watering down the martial spirit, feminizing the military, DEI in the combat arms, are all going to undermine the ability of the military to perform in combat or on ships crews, where you have men fighting or sailing together.

            Not to mention the COVID shots they mandated.

            All those “military-age men” crossing the border, I can only speculate, but they could be Chinese undercover commandos or mercenaries who might have nefarious intentions; soldiers in gangs or drug outfits, also nefarious; or just young men who are likely to engage in criminal behavior if they can’t find work and make money and get a woman.

            All of this will would put pressure on communities, and the government will use that as a pretext to clamp down on civil liberties. That’s my pick.

            I don’t see these young male aliens enlisting. BUT, I don’t discount that either. “Serve in the Army, get your US citizenship”.

            I don’t think the Pentagon cares that much about white males. I think they DO care that their recruitment is down in general, and among white males in particular. Perhaps I should have phrased it like that.

            Also, I think the word has gotten out (from friends and relatives) that “if you’re white, you’re going to be discriminated against in terms of promotions and assignments”, and that’s impacted recruitment.

        • Socrates-Detroit March 4, 2024 at 10:38 pm #

          The United States “has been their vehicle for a long time”.

          I think it still is?

          Who will replace the US military? The dollar?

          Germany? France? The EU? The Euro? I can’t see it. In some ways, they are in worse shape than the US (but in a few they are not–their food is less GMO, a little less “industrial”, and they are not as “suburbanized”), but when it comes to marshalling resources and creating a big global military, I can’t see it.

          The “West” reacted to Feb 2022 phase of the war in Ukraine (the war started in 2014, as JHK noted) by “embargoing” Russian energy.

          That impacted Europe much more than the US. (We saw it last winter in higher nat gas prices, since we had to liquify and export some gas to Europe, to try to make up a SMALL portion of that inexpensive, CONVENIENT piped nat gas the European, especially Germany, got from Russia).

          Russia was a much more important trade partner with Europe than the US.

          German manufacturing depended on inexpensive Russian energy as much as the US automakers depend on inexpensive Mexican labor for auto and auto parts.

          So now I think the US is more powerful in relation to (a weaker) Europe.

          I have a hard time thinking that China will supplant the US as the Globalist/International Banker’s “vehicle” to impose a one-world government.

          The cartel capitalists originated in Europe and the virus especially grew in the City of London (19th century) then Wall Street (20th century). They’re western.

          China is of the EAST. While China has taken Western ideas and adopted them, some bad (Communism), some good (manufacturing), I cannot see Chinese Asians subordinating themselves to Caucasian bankers even MORE.

          China is part of the dollar-denominated system today. I think they are trying to go around the dollar–without blowing up their economy, which still is geared to exporting stuff to keep people working and busy.

          And for big money to profit, it needs a contest (arms race or war) so it can extract interest from the warring factions.

          But who knows…maybe the Devil has seduced the Chinese, and is going to “fund” them at the US expense….

        It’s why the British backed the South (causing the Russian navy to enter San Francisco Bay). There have always been international interests, that is banksters, looking to break up the country. The threat to the World Order was always real.

      The wars in Gaza, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq would come to a screeching halt with no more money. Our 800 bases world-wide would shut down and most soldiers would figure out a way to get back home.

        No sane country wants to take on the US’ black hole of problems.

            It is a matter of defining what it is that people are encountering that leads them to call it an “alien”.

            Fact is that humanity has been having such encounters for a very long time. What is here with us is old. They can speak into the mind, disguising themselves as an “inner voice”, thoughts, and negative emotions. This is why we were warned to take captive our thoughts, and to cast down vain imaginations. These nudges are often from what moves against us.

            Psychology and physics have done remarkably well cleaning up the loose ends. The DSM has a raft of “conditions” for anyone bold enough to question what is happening.

    In that scenario, the Russians would be the best off country in the world due to their relative self sufficiency. The US won’t let that happen.

      Armstrong wrote an article seeing Nukes as the eventual result too. The US really needs to get the Neo Con bunch out of power and at least talk to the Russians. I don’t know though. There is now a fourth branch of government in the US, the military industrial, intelligence, security state that’s accountable to no one. No checks and balances between the branches of government anymore. Even mentioning checks and balances seems quaint.

      • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 11:02 am #

        I am really tired of the nuke argument. Been hearing this my entire life. Yet nobody, other than the good ole USA has used a nuke. Mutual Assured Destruction is a strong deterrent. I just don’t by the nuke argument. Why use it when America is destroying itself from the inside out?

        • TruthSeeker1986 March 4, 2024 at 11:58 am #


          But has the U.S. ever hit Russia with a nuke? What would happen if Nato attacks them? I’m with you Cankerpuss, I’m sick of all the nuclear scare shit myself. It’s annoying and I struggle with sleep because of it. I also understand that people may have concerns and just feel that we are going to have a nuclear war due to how intense things are now. Plus Putin admitted he would use one and Kim of NK has threaten to use them as well…. There is always talk as to how a nuclear war will happen and a third world war always spoke of nuclear weapons being used in the conflict. Fact is it’s very nerve racking to think about….

          I already feel uncomfortable going out knowing there are hordes of illegals wandering around. I truly do hope that nuclear war doesn’t happen…. Because I’m seriously prepared to commit suicide the first chance someone launches one of those fuckers…. I don’t want to be alive and experience what the Japanese went through… I’ve seen videos of it and it’s horrific, I can just imagine what it sounded like when it hit the ground and the people couldn’t escape or flee, they had no choice but to die in that hellfire. I can barely tolerate the sound of illegal fireworks going off!

          But I cannot imagine living in this world where people are stupid enough and crazy enough to use these weapons no one has made any effort to abolish other than Africa… What’s wrong with just regularly fighting like they use to? Why Nuclear weapons? To fulfill some nightmarish prophecy?

          • Paula D March 4, 2024 at 12:21 pm #

            Putin didn’t actually threaten to use a nuke. That is how western propaganda works.

            France and other countries started talking about sending troops openly to Ukraine. Germany was caught talking about how to destroy the Crimea bridge.
            The US is sending long range missiles to Ukraine and Nuland threatened Russia openly. As usual for Americans, she personalized the entire country to one man, and said “Putin is going to get nasty surprises” before the election.
            Talk about interfering in an election!!!! That is what the US did in Ukraine and is now doing openly in Russia, but the idiots still blather on about 46 Facebook ads.

            Anyway, Putin was giving his state of the union address, and he talked about the threats of the West, and he pointed out that the last two times the West invaded Russia it didn’t go well for them, and that now Russia has missiles that can reach them, so they don’t have to fight on their own soil this time, and lose another 27 million Russians.

            And then the Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda took that warning and turned it into a threat!!
            That is how they do. And he only mentioned missiles, but they turned it into “Putin threatened to nuke us!! He is a mad man!”

            We are run by crooks and criminals. They are also mass murderers. And they have no particular affection for us.
            So, yeah, they would use nuclear weapons if they think they can survive.

            Well you make a lot of strong points, I’m not saying or claiming I never fell for Propaganda lies at some part of my life. I am saying that if the West DOES use a nuke on Russia, Putin isn’t going to stand there like the Japanese and take that shit from the U.S. he’s going to most likely use one too. He was even flying around in an aircraft capable of dropping those kind of weapons. Unless that was AI generated, in which case that was the most realist AI generated image I’ve seen.

            I honestly wish there was something we could do about this. I want to believe there’s something we can do about it. It would be even better if they just killed off the people starting shit, like what would happen to anyone else. If you were the members of the bloods and walk into the crips territory and threaten one of the leaders. They would then have you executed. Who ever Putin launches a missile at I hope it’s not at some random city and he simply just hits the POS in DC. They would deserve it.

            Nuland only threaten him because he knows that he’s not the one that have to fight. It’s easy to threaten someone when you’re not the one doing the fighting. It’s garbage like Nuland that makes me wonder why do soldiers even bother dying for them. Would be easier to just turn their weapons on him for being a stupid dickhead.

            Yes, it is Russian nuclear policy to respond to a nuclear weapon with many nuclear weapons.

            Hence, Putin’s multiple warnings to the US. Which the Mighty Wurlitzer turns into threats, and the ruling class ignores.

            Nuland was actually openly threatening terrorism, which the US calls “insurgency” when it is their thugs doing the terrorism. She was celebrating the deaths of Russian civilians, like the 36 killed in Belgorod, while they were out celebrating the Christmas holiday, and threatening even more terrorist attacks.

            Watch and see. The next time the US (in the name of Ukraine) attacks a civilian target, or kills multiple Russian citizens, watch how the media celebrates their deaths.

            Victoria “Cookies” Nuland, orchestrated the 2014 coup in Ukraine, and hand picked the people to be placed in the new coup government.

            They call her “Cookies” Nuland because she was out on Maidan Square handing out cookies. That was a PR stunt, because the US shamelessly pushed for the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine (and then turned around and blamed Russia for the last 8 years of “interfering” in our sacred elections).

            Behind the scenes, the US was paying for the protesters to stay on the Maidan. They paid students twice as much as older people, because they liked the optics of “the young people uprising” better.

      • Anthea March 5, 2024 at 12:07 am #

        Charles Nenner is another one whose models foresee nuclear war. He stated this in his most recent interview with Gregg Hunter on USAWatchdog.

        This forecast is based on the information they’ve fed to their computer models, so its accuracy depends largely on what they fed to the models and partly on “imponderables.” Nenner says that his models indicate that we are in a “war cycle,” in which loss of life must equal a few billion. Since the only way to accomplish loss of life in those numbers is nuclear war, it therefore follows (according to Nenner’s models) that there will be a nuclear war. This does not strike me as perfectly sound reasoning. In fact, it seems like kind of a stretch.

        Besides that, I don’t know about the rest of you, but those “imponderables” have figured very strongly in my life course. I would not discount them on the world stage.

      All that in a society with more modest, and probably more sustainable standard of living (even allowing for Communist environmental disasters).

            When you have so many nuclear weapons, I would say it’s impossible for anyone to just overthrow you. A lot of these countries have lesser people, some have too many. India is one of them, and some people say China’s birth rates are low, but China still have a very large population of people. It’s not like they are South Korea or Japan.

          • Paula D March 4, 2024 at 3:20 pm #

            China and India both have too many people. The whole handwringing over a fall in the birth rate is bizarre, when China is scouring the world, including the oceans, trying to find enough to feed them. India just lets them starve, it seems.

            All of SE Asia is overpopulated, imo. Look at the street scenes of major cities in Hong Kong, Indonesia, or Singapore. Damn.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 4, 2024 at 7:29 pm #

            @Cankerpuss My perception (for what it’s worth) is that has changed.

            The Russian government is actively encouraging families to have more children (in the conventional sense).

            The Orthodox Church supports families.

            After the epic depression of the 90s where at one point I read the life expectancy for Russian males was….59… and alcoholism was a significant contributor to that sad statistic, my sense is things have gotten better.

            When things get better or improve, people are optimistic about the future.

            Again, just my two cents, but when people are optimistic about the future, they get married and procreate.

            Wasn’t optimism the defining trait of American society after WW2 until JFK was shot, followed by the Vietnam War? Baby boom was 1948-1963.

            Anecdotally, that’s my perception about Greece in the 1970s as well, kind of like the US in the 1950s. The Greeks had problems, but the tide was rising, and people were optimistic, and the population grew a little.

            The Duran (Alex Christoforou) on YouTube, and Larry Johnson of sonar21.com, both very informative (like JHK, even if I personally don’t agree 100%) both have visited Moscow and other cities and say they are very nice, orderly, crime is not a concern, and they are not assaulted by graffiti.

            I think the news we get from the MSM will invariably exaggerate the shortcomings of Russia and make it sound like Russia is one step away from collapse.

            Those Russians are falling apart, birth dearth…

            No. WE, the US of A, are one step from away from collapse, and WE have the birth dearth–and we are filling it with people who at best are well intentioned, at worse are malevolent. but either way, they are quite different from White and Black America as it was from 1925 to about 1990.

            We will see how this “diversity” will play out when the pie shrinking….

            The population of Russia dropped by millions in the 90s, as people were ripped out of their lifestyles and thrown into poverty.

            The Mighty Wurlitzer of propaganda refers to the increased death in the 90s as “life expectancy dropped dramatically”.

            They don’t want to admit that turning the country over to Wall Street bankers didn’t work out so well for Russians.

            I think that the population is finally recovering, so I don’t know why the propaganda now says that they are losing population.

            All those babies that were not born during the 90s (part of the response to the installed poverty) are not reproducing now.
            It will take a while to get over that dearth of reproductive aged people.

    Eisenhower drove the Lincoln Road coast-to-coast early on. He was horrified. The Autobahn was impressive. Faced with an unemployable military returned home and a country that lacked internal commerce, he built the national highway system in deep debt using every excuse he could muster. Results were astoundingly wonderful; debt erased.

    The DemSoc OneState ventured well beyond that…in counterpoint. fJoe Biden vaporized a $trillion/year suffocating every aspect of economic hegemony from education to consumption, minus every civil safeguard. Grotesque cronies with neither talent nor ability – offering only loyalty and corruption – have shut ‘er down.

    Nikki Haley spiked a primary? One wonders what GOP RINOs swapped for that excrescence – harbinger echo for the Guy Fawkes Day national feudal state confederation.

      We had a magnificent transportation system, the rail network, and it consisted of dozens of independent businesses ferrying goods and people around the country. The problem was, Ike hated it, so he undermined it and used federal money to fund its competitors (airlines, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and, above all, the Interstate highway system) in order to destroy it. He mostly succeeded: the passenger network collapsed in the ’50s and ’60s, with the coup de grace delivered when the Post Office pulled mail off trains around 1967/68. Major lines merged and abandoned trunk lines in an effort to stay in business, often selling rights-of-way to developers (Potomac Yard in northern Virginia) or state
      or federal governments (parts of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western became the basis for I-80 in New Jersey and I-86 in New Ork, for example), but that didn’t always work: Milwaukee, Rock Island, and most major lines in the Northeast went under, with the Northeastern companies’ lines rescued with a government takeover as Conrail in order to keep General Motors (and, to a lesser degree, Ford and Chrysler) from tanking. We now have just a few major rail companies, and they are generally uninterested in anything more than unit trains — certainly not serving small customers. But Ike got his American Autobahn, and all those aircraft and naval mechanics who served in WW2 and Korea had careers, so it all worked out — for awhile.

          I think that Texas might very well lead likeminded states into formal secession. We can see which states sided with Texas versus the Feds in regards to the border crisis. Now they just need to come up with a common alternative currency that can only be used in those respective states. Before the Civil War many states had state currencies.

    If not, then while the other king was still a long way off, he would send envoys to sue for peace.”

    The past year, dealing with my husband’s somewhat aggressive early prostate cancer has been a nightmare, bouncing between two broken large clinic systems, one of them being Mayo Clinic. Took weeks and months to get treated. Staff MDs unable to properly operate biopsy equipment (at which point my husband took command and said, “Here’s what’s going to happen. Number one, you’re going to pull this probe outta my ass . . . “)

    Once the operation had happened, and I went home to catch a few winks, hubby called me to “get me the hell out of here,” since staff overnight had been too busy to help him get up or even deliver pain medicine. I found him tied down with telemetry, BP cuff, SCDs, drain, etc., and helped him up.

    Then the complications rolled in, one after the other, including a small bowel obstruction, and that hospitalization was barely better.

    Throughout it all, my husband lost nearly 80 pounds out of sheer nerves, annoyance, and despair.

    Meanwhile, I have lost any desire to tend to a few of my medical issues, including severe patellar arthritis that has me moving like Granny Grunt. Which is a hell of a note, since I’ve worked in health care for almost 40 years, in one capacity or another.

        There was a local woman suing the hospital where I live over her father’s care. This was right after Obamacare, and hospitals had taken a dramatic turn for the worse.

        She wrote a letter to the paper about it, and she said she had hired a home health aide just to sit there and watch when she couldn’t be at her father’s side.

        I feel bad for you and mb both. It’s rough out there.

        • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 10:37 am #

          I often wonder what I would do if I was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. The treatment today is worse than the disease and causes a plethora of health ailments above and beyond what the cancer does. Part of me would much rather just let the disease run its course and finish me off than pad the pockets and the wallets of the fat cat administrators and doctors.

          Easy for me to say as I am currently a healthy individual. I might think differently when death is staring at me.

          I live in a state where the name Huntsman is a big deal. Huntsman was a billionaire who funeled his charitable givings into a cancer research facility. It’s been there for decades and I will receive mailers asking for more money for them to research and eliminate cancer. Today, after decades of research the way they treat cancer is still the same. Either they cut off parts of your body, burn the hell out of it with radiation, or they poison you in hopes that the cancer will die before you do. Billions of dollars, decades of research and this is all they can come up with?

          And don’t get me started on organ and blood donation. I go give blood and they give me some cookies. They then turn around and sell my blood to a hospital for $600.00 a pint? Kiss my ass.

          • Beryl of Oyl March 4, 2024 at 11:02 am #

            I used to donate blood regularly. My workplace would host blood drives and allow us the time to go donate.

            Then I would get phone calls at home about coming in to donate, when it was much too soon to do so.

            I thought oh well it’s just volunteers, don’t be hard on them, but I found out later that no, they paid these people.

          • tuco22 March 4, 2024 at 11:05 am #

            Ain’t it a great system? They “treat” cancer the way they do because the American medical system looks at illness and disease as profitable, not something to be eradicated. How will they afford their houses on the lake? I just had a good friend die of a urinary tract infection, not the cancer, due to being debilitated by the chemo.

          • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 11:09 am #

            And don’t get me started on organ donation, Beryl.

            They rip a dying person’s organs out of their bodies, don’t give a dime to the donator’s family (probaby charge them for the hospital time). They then take those organs, ship them to some poor schmuck who is desperate to live, insert the organs into that individual giving them a longer life, though, reliant upon immuno-supressant drugs. What goads me is the hospital then charges the poor family that received the organs tens of thousands of dollars and the hospital is profiting immensely off the organ harvesting.

            Do they still charge the family of the poor dead guy for the work to harvest and transport his organs or is the service free? Not likely.

            Sure, organ donation saves lives but it’s also a big money maker for doctors and hospitals. Why don’t they give a financial kickback to the donor’s family instead of sending them a bill. Horrible what they do if you ask me.

          • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 11:13 am #

            Tucco, can you imagine the economic impacts a cure to cancer would have? How many jobs are generated by cancer treatment? How many jobs are generated by the manufacture of cancer “treating” chemicals? If some poor slob actually invented a simple cure to cancer he’d either be bribed into silence or simply made to disappear.

            I once read of a technology where a doctor used nano-technology to inject microscopic flecks of gold into cancer cells. The person with the cancer was then inserted into a chamber and radio waves were passed through them (not radioactive waves). The waves caused the flecks of gold in the cancer cells to vibrate, heat up and kill the cancer cells. The cancer cells were destroyed without any ill effects to the healthy cells.

            Haven’t heard anything about that since. Where did it go? Where did the research go? Can’t find anything about it but I know I read it.

          • megabeth March 4, 2024 at 11:18 am #

            Some good points, there. There is no magic cure for cancer, never will be, and a lot of fraudulence in health care, these days, so choose carefully in your choice of charity.

            My husband definitely did the right thing, since he is in his 60s, the cancer went from 0 to 60 both symptomatically and histologically, and prostate cancer kills more American men than any other cancer except lung. Dying from it is miserable. My last hospice patient with it said it felt like sitting on a baseball, and I had to instill lidocaine up his urethra ever few hours in addition to frequent narcotics. We’re hoping that nothing spread outside the prostate, and so far, his prognosis is sunny. So is the prognosis for future continence and other function.

            Consider the paragraph above as a men’s health PSA.

            Back in the early 60’s, while in Air Force ROTC in college, we gave blood once every six months, as I recall. It was not mandatory for a cadet to give blood, but was highly encouraged.

            Memory might fail me, but I recall being told that if you gave blood to the Red Cross, you would receive blood free, if needed.

            Ever hear of something like this?

          • megabeth March 4, 2024 at 11:52 am #

            I have heard about the free blood but have never verified it. Red Cross records tend to be discontinuous, and hospital billers are probably paid to be obtuse. Plus, as a nurse, I know that it takes man-hours to administer blood and properly monitor the recipient, so even without the cost of the blood per se, transfusions are still costly.

            There are decades d cancer cures that were suppressed by big pharma. A substacker scientist (can’t remember her name at the moment) was manufacturing one of them in New Zealand until the lockdowns.

            Also, the horse dewormer fenbendazole (safeguard & panacure otc) was accidentally discovered to cure glioblastoma when test mice were treated for pinworms. Trials have shown it effective against many types of solid tumors, including triple negative breast cancer.

            Of course, to keep control, big pharma is using an analog (Mebendazole) with other compounds plus vitamins & charging $500/dose.

            But people w/out insurance have been self-treating successfully. Dose is by weight.

            Look up “fenbendazole” in substack fmi. Plus googling shows trial info.

            I’ve also seen references to ivermectin for some cancers, but not the volumes of i fo as on fenben.

            Yes I have heard that blood donors did not pay for blood. I have never tested that.

            Cank, if you are diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, I would recommend learning to accept death. In fact, I wouldn’t wait for cancer to make the decision. You’re gonna die someday, accept that fact and use it to remind you to live the life you have left.

            My mother died of lung cancer (life-long nonsmoker). She didn’t go through chemo, and was gardening, despite the increasing pain, up until three weeks before she died. Her sister and younger brother both did chemo, and prolonged their misery for several months – during which they were barely able to get out of bed – only to ultimately die.

            Regarding blood donation, I no longer trust anyone to stick a needle in my arm. Donating/selling plasma is even worse. There is no way to know that you are getting your own plasma back, or that even if it is yours, that it hasn’t been contaminated. I had a low opinion of the “medical industry” – that’s what they call it and that’s what it is – before “Covid”, now I consider it a criminal organization.

          • Anthea March 5, 2024 at 12:30 am #

            @ mary.m:

            I have heard about fenbendazole on some other websites, and it sounds to me like it’s your best shot, if you’re diagnosed with cancer–though I don’t know which cancers it’s effective against. Ivermectin is also supposed to help, I think to a lesser degree.

            The interesting thing is that fenbendazole is an antipyretic–that is, it kills parasites, as does Ivermectin.

            There have been some doctors (Hulda Clark, for example) who have maintained that cancer is caused by parasites. Her book, The Cure for All Cancers provides a protocol for cancer that involves daily doses of antipyretic herbs: wormwood, clove, and black walnut hull tincture.

            The way I heard about the book was that one of my neighbors claimed to have cured his prostate cancer with this protocol. He heard of it from a co-worker who was able to cure his terminal cancer after the doctors sent him home to die. One of my other neighbors has used the protocol to successfully treat cancer in two of her dogs.

            I think I would probably go with fenbendazole, as Dr. Clark’s protocol is a bit cumbersome. Or maybe I’d do both.

            But the basic idea that cancer is caused by parasites is interesting.

Anyway, I tried to share a link to BenFen’s substack, Fenbendazole Can Cure Cancer (just google it) and Dr. Paul Marik’s book, Cancer Care (download for free; link in the case reports on BenFen’s substack). Dr. Marik discusses repurposed drugs for cancer and gives strong recommendation to the class of drugs containing fenbendazole and mebendazole. BenFen collects papers and case reports of folks who’ve used fenbendazole for different cancers with good to great effect. Both resources highly recommended!

        My father died two weeks after surgery to remove a benign brain tumor that the surgeon promised was “routine surgery.” The fucking surgeon still billed my mother’s insurance $65,000 for killing my father.

        • megabeth March 4, 2024 at 10:43 am #

          Yes. When something goes wrong, they kill you with kindness and still charge you.

          22 years ago, I sustained a perforated uterus when a surgeon blindly cut away inside it with Mayo scissors instead of using a resectoscope, which was the standard of care. He was apologetic and said he’d waive his $6,000 surgical fee. Never happened. I didn’t sue because the surgery did help me carry a baby to term, but I have waged a word-of-mouth campaign to warn people away from him. He’s retired now, the twat.

          • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 10:55 am #

            Ironically, it wasn’t the actual surgery that killed my Dad. It was the pre-surgical procedure where they entered the body through an artery in the groin and fished a small balloon to where the tumor was in the brain. The idea was to cut off the blood supply so when removing the tumor there would be no hemoragging (I can’t spell that word). The moment they inflated the tiny balloon to cut off the blood supply guess what the tumor did? It hemoraged. My Dad had a massive stroke before they even started cutting away at the brain tumor. He was a goner before the actual “surgery” took place. But hey, at least they got the god damn tumor out.

            Fucking bastards. Yeah, I am bitter. And yes, for all you spell mongers out there, I misspelled “hemorage.” It’s one of those words I just can’t figure out.

            As a younger attending, I once said to our Medicine Dept head, ‘Finland and Cuba both have proven rapid cures for various cancers; why aren’t we looking at what they’re doing and research it?’ His response: “Dr. Neurodoc, what the hell do you think would happen if we started curing cancer; how many nurses, techs and doctors would be out of work; how many hospitals would be shut down from lack of business?” I was floored and never forget it. And, I can assure you that things are much worse now. I tell family members and friends to stay the hell out of hospitals unless you’re bleeding to death, or can’t breath.

          • Cankerpuss March 4, 2024 at 4:03 pm #

            Neurodoc, I also recall reading an article a couple of years ago by a seasoned oncologist who admitted that the way we are treating cancer is not any better than how they were treating cancer 80 years ago. He admitted that we can’t keep doing things the same way anymore. The patient can’t afford the treatment and the provider can’t afford the treatment. It’s all getting to expensive. He began discussing a certain T-cell that is adept at attacking and neutralizing cancer cells. He stated that in his studies he has found that this particular T-cell is “inactive” in most cancer patients and that those without cancer have a higher activity rate and as such fewer incidents of cancer. It was his position that we find ways to activate these T-cells through certain dietary means and so forth and abandon the current trio of cutting off, burning and poisoning.

          Cank- Sorry about your father. There are no guarantees with surgery- it’s just a chance when the alternative is to do nothing. Surgical fees are set by Medicare directly and indirectly. What a surgeon charges is irrelevant. If surgeons only sent bills when the outcome is perfect, surgeons would not take on difficult and risky cases, causing many unnecessary deaths.

          • neurodoc March 4, 2024 at 1:40 pm #

            THEREFORE: avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary. Way too many knee, hip and shoulder arthroplasties (joint replacements) are done and often fail with worse pain after than before and no change in functionality. Americans are way too oriented to the ‘quick fix’ offered by surgery. Research alternatives.

            My Dad died 20 years ago. The medical establishment today is even worse than it was then.

            Yes, there is inherent risk for surgery. I get it. Surgery was my Dad’s last option. Unfortunately, he didn’t have many options to choose from. It was either take the tumor out or die a long, miserable death.

            My understanding is that it was the jokingly named “Affordable Care Act” and its coverage of “gender-reassignment therapy” that led to the boom in “transitioning”. I know people who were fined over $1,000 by the IRS because they couldn’t afford “Obamacare”. Just one more miracle delivered to us by Black Jesus.

            Ron, while I have the majority of my chips on President-for-Life Hildebeast, I don’t discount a Second Coming of Orange Jesus. If he does return I expect more of what we got the first time around, but on steroids: TDS squared, Burn Loot ‘n’ Murder, Disease X, war with Iran…

            I had expected the Great Orange One to be dressed in orange – or at least “legally” disqualified from running – before the selection. Not so much to prevent him from re-occupying the White House, but to enrage his followers so that a false flag could be blamed on them.

            Presidents – in my opinion – have no real power. Their job is to manipulate the emotions of the masses.

            Trump’s mission – whether he accepts it or not – is to sow division. The Hildebeast’s, to sow hysteria. The Big Guy’s, to sow confusion – and to convince Democrat die-hards to dismiss what they can plainly see and cling to a rotting corpse.

            Bird – I agree with you on all counts. Just for my own personal comic relief (and triggering the local liberals), I’ve decided on the next custom vinyl-lettered saying on my back windshield – “Orange Jesus is Coming”.

            Mentioning Biden and his long and distinguished list of abject failures does nothing to them – they ignore it or don’t even seem to hear it.

            Now mention Trump – by any reference – and their heads explode – they’re so easy, easier than shooting fish in a barrel. I buy pacifiers in bulk and keep them in my console.

            Any of them brave enough to say anything to me at a traffic light, I throw pacifiers at them – not one, a handful – it’s so much more fun with them bouncing all around in stopped traffic at a stoplight.

            Taunting liberals – the most fun you can have with your clothes on. Half the people in STA think I’m crazy – the other half are certain of it.

          Canker – that’s essentially what happened to my dad in December. His surgery was for a blockage in the carotid between neck/forehead, they went in from all the way down in the groin up to his neck to clean it out…it went “fine” for a few hours afterward, then he threw a clot and had a stroke. Second resulting stroke later that week did the job.

          From my conversations with the surgeon, he confirmed that the procedure essentially created the loose material which then later caused the strokes.

          Surgeon was very apologetic and stressed, saying that had never happened before…perhaps true, but I didn’t quite buy it in the moment. I realize they have tough jobs, but especially when they prove to not be a god.

          The choice for surgery was ultimately up to my dad, and we didn’t disagree. That said, after that surgery, nothing was up to him again.

      I have just been reading about how bad DIE is affecting medical care in this country.

      It’s only going to get worse.

      There’s an interesting article (not suggesting it to you, beth; it won’t help your situation) at Taki’s Magazine, “Experts” Part II: The Dementia Guardrail Paradox by David Cole.

      He gives an example of something that happened to his elderly mother, involving a bedrail, to illustrate the poor state of hospital care.

      Something very similar happened to a good friend of mine involving nursing home staff at the place her mother lived.

      It’s as if people’s brains have fallen out or something.

      • tuco22 March 4, 2024 at 11:07 am #

            This, Tuco. Skilled Nursing Facilities in particular are burdened with strict regulation. Siderails are now considered restraints and you get dinged, big-time, for using them.

            Then again, back in the day, limber demented residents would dive over them and suffer much greater trauma from having fallen harder, from higher up. Common sense and hard work is required to figure out what the vulnerable resident needs, and CMS regulations sometimes deactivate our judgment with respect to needed care.

      I read the description of your husband’s ordeal, and it gives me the shivers because of my wife’s condition, multiple myeloma. I consider ourselves exceptionally lucky because our health care has been extraordinary good at Dana Farber Cancer Center (DFCC). My wife is doing fine. Looking at her, you’d never know she has a deadly cancer.
      I think it’s because of her care. I don’t know if it will always be that way, but at least for now she’s acting normally. Presently, my biggest concern is that I’m waiting for the hammer to drop, but that’s just my personality, not her actual situation.

      When I read about your husband’s health treatment I feel badly for you both. As you are working in healthcare, you must know that such care varies from horrific to excellent. Is there any way you can go to another treatment center?

      Have you tried glucosamine for your arthritis? Both of my hips were burning, and I couldn’t lie on them at all or sit or stand or walk with any comfort, when it was recommended to me. I have been taking it daily for years now and really only suffer from stiffness.

      I wound up in intensive care for two days with a runaway UTI recently–I thought I had some sort of flu. It caused my low-level diabetes to flair. As I am unconcerned at running a blood sugar in the 140s, I refused insulin and requested metformin (I can get a 90-day supply for $10.75). They bullied me for two days, refusing food and checking blood sugars every few hours day and night until I finally submitted so they would leave me alone. However, I refused to fill an Rx for insulin when I was discharged, and they had no choice but to prescribe metformin. I’m doing fine, thank you very much,

      I take valerian root for tremor and dystonia. That amound of dopamine works very well.
      I take niacin and keep a bar of soap between the sheets (an old Irish folk remedy) for restless legs. I sleep well.
      I take a triple dose of fish oil for dry eyes. It helps.
      I take magnesium supplements for muscle cramps. I haven’t had a Charlie horse in years. It has other benefits, as well.Everyb
      I take vitamin D3 for my immune system.
      I take NAC daily as a strong anti-oxident. I had a suspicious skin growth that I believed was cancerous. A poster on another site said it was quite effective with solid tumors so I tried it, and within a week there was noticeable shrinkage. It is entirely gone now. I plan on taking it for the rest of my life as a preventative.

      In short, there’s probably something natural and effective out there for a lot of what ails us, and I don’t trust the medical profession anymore. Everybody on my father'[s side of the family has died of cancer.

        I’m glad that your problems are managed well with home treatment, for the most part.

        In short, my kneecaps have no cartilage left, thanks to a misalignment that happened at puberty. For decades, my knees crunched, but now they squeak, like wet wood on wet wood. The sports medicine guy aspirated over 60 mL of blood from one knee, once, and that did help, but basically, short of knee replacement, I’m SOL.

        @ draupnir:

        I started having trouble with my back “going out,” and also muscle cramps, in 1985 and began taking calcium/magnesium–the wrong thing to do as you should not take calcium for this. I did this because all of the natural healing books of that era–astoundingly!–said calcium was the fix. Anyway, this worked for years, in spite of the calcium component in the supplement, I guess because it was at least delivering magnesium.

        This stopped working in, I think, about 2005. At the time, I was corresponding with a woman I had met online, who said the was a microbiologist retired from Oxford University. I asked her what to do, and she said to take magnesium alone. She was horrified that I had read that calcium was good for this. (The reverse is true. Calcium is bad for this.)

        Taking magnesium supplements worked until 2023, and both the muscle cramps and back problems returned. I had learned from one of my daughters that there are several different kinds of magnesium supplements, so I did a little research and ordered some magnesium citrate, which is supposed to be the kind that’s best for muscle cramps. (When your back “goes out,” it’s really just a muscle cramp.) The magnesium citrate works for me now.

    “Decouple. Cut loose. It’s the only way.” A breakthrough here.

    For the past couple of years we have had held out for us the tantalizing prospect of Justice: the honest facts laid out for the public to understand; the orderly prosecution of malefactors; condign punishment.

    Alas, in today’s America none if that was ever in the cards. Posterity may be able to reconstruct the perfidy and malfeasance, but will be left to wonder why no-one was ever held to account for it all. Instead, the Locomotive of State continues its rush toward the burning trestle, unimpeded.

    The plunge into the ravine will take place November 5th, or January 20th, at the latest. The Immovable Object (D) will be met by the Irresistible Force (R). Each side will be damned before they will accept the other’s choice for our future. And then we will all be in uncharted territory.

    Excellent write up today Jim. Your words exactly reflect my feelings. I have different analogy to describe the situation and it also involves a runaway vehicle to describe how I feel.

    I’m standing in the middle of the road. My feet are stuck in the asphalt having been paved over by road crews previous to me (previous generations, my parents, etc). I want to move out of this road but I can’t. I’m stuck. I see down the road, in the distance a large vehicle lumbering toward me. It is a large, rusty, ugly Mack truck belching smoke from its stack and steam from it’s grill. It’s once beautiful chrome grills are black giving impression of an angry maw gnashing its decayed teeth behind it. It is loud, clanging along. I see it coming and I want to get out of the way but I can’t. It’s coming right at me and I can’t move. I know that when it hits it is going to hurt and it is going to possibly kill me. So I tense up, close my eyes and brace for the inevitable impact. Nothing happens. So, I open my eyes and there is the lumbering behemoth moving towards me but it never seems to arrive. It never gets close enough to hit me but it is always there, reminding me that it is coming and one day it is going to get to me. However, it doesn’t move, it doesn’t turn, it doesn’t deviate from its course, it just keeps coming at me and I keep bracing for that painful impact that will inevitably come.

    That’s how I feel about America today. I am slave to a system that I had no say in creating and I am stuck in that system that I know is failing and when that system finally comes down it is going to hurt. But it doesn’t seem to come down. Like that Mack truck, it just keeps waiting, waiting and waiting to inflict the final strike.

    God bless all of you.

          That reminds me of something I saw on X. The deterioration of our society is being helped along by the deliberate introduction of lots and lots of drugs.

          On that topic, one man was complaining about how the drugs today come in deliberately childish packaging, and are out where children can happen upon them.

          He had this to say about drug use:


          I have no problem with druggies going in a yurt somewhere and smoking pot. But that’s not what they want.

          They demand to live in a civilization that’s ONLY POSSIBLE due to clean people.

          It’s infantile at best and parasitic and worse.”

          Exactly. They want it both ways.

          This was a response, and it is something I agree with:


          It’s the same with the sexual degenerates. They claim to want the government out of their bedrooms but also want to perform their disgusting acts in the public square to rounds of applause.
          7:16 PM · Mar 3, 2024”

          Exactly again. Which is why I will never validate some mentally ill freak’s fetish that he can be a girl because the next thing you know he is demanding entry into the women’s restroom so defenseless girls are forced to play along with his sexual fantasies.

    Going by the train metaphor, my fear is that the whole of the rest of the industrialized world is likewise joined to the runaway train that is the US.

    And again going by the same metaphor, CHINA is likewise a runaway train, but with a wild boar with negative IQ in the engineer’s seat and the conductor(s) threatening every passenger with violence unless they repeat the party line that ‘everything is fine and couldn’t be better’, never mind all the glaring signs that everything is plainly not better.

    • lflawse March 5, 2024 at 3:21 am #

      We are. Once we accepted the already debt laden USD as the Reserve Currency in 1971, we were all on the Debt bound train.
      A little before that we accepted that Current Account Deficits don’t matter. So we accepted that productivity no longer mattered – we could all just borrow whatever the deficit was, or sell of whatever national assets, to fill the gap.
      The Western World adopted all the US economic stupidity. Unfortunately, Asia, while highly productive, aligned their economies to supply the debt laden USA et al, while it should have been obvious that the consumption economics, was unsustainable in the long term. Thus the economies of China, Japan et al became aligned with the debt/over-consumption model.
      The productive economies will survive the melee better than the non-productive. However, it is not a train ride any of us will enjoy.

    The speeding train is being semi engineered up front by Joe …..it’s on autopilot and all he has to do is hit the horn now and again….and like Kamala, this train doesn’t even have a nice caboose
    I think at this point it’s hopeless to try and stop it ..or even detach a car…there’s another train right behind it with with Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray looking for stragglers…

      More than war, I am afraid. The entire system needs to collapse. The order of fiat money needs to overthrown and purged from our system. The purge must be so awful that the next hundred generations will not forget what happened.

      The order of our time is collapsing and is more dangerous now than ever before. This collapse will lead to war but not the hot war most consider. It will be neighbor against neighbor. Town against town. It will be horrific.

      That’s why I will keep the last bullet in the chamber for myself. There are far worse things to endure than death.

    This morning, the SCOTUS unanimously ruled that a state may not kick a Federal candidate off of the ballot just because they feel like it. The ruling was broad and crystal clear.

    What may happen next may be frightening. Biden and the Democrat swine in the blob may just ignore the ruling, or Biden may move to some declaration like Martial Law. That would ignite a Civil War for sure, but it’s obvious that inciting a war just to cover up Blob corruption and thirst for power is just plain OK for Democrats and a few RINOs. Proof? Ukraine.

    As nice as “de-coupling” sounds, it may not work unless the decoupled cars (states) can avoid the rest of the runaway train aggressively recoupling to it before continuing over the cliff into the abyss.

    Despite all the MSM propaganda and Democrat gas-lighting, it is not the conservatives in America who are the violent criminals and war-mongers. Most all conservatives that I know just want to be left alone. By contrast, it is the Democrat swine who are the power-hungry control freaks willing to use violence to impose their will upon the rest of America.

    JHK has not directly stated one obvious fact: the Socialists may control the decaying, dysfunctional, corrupt, and dying American metroplexes, but conservatives control most of the food, energy, and water resources. They also have the closest ties to the land itself and believe that the land is worth fighting for. City slickers might do well to heed the old saying, ‘It’s not a good idea to f*** around with the people feeding you.”

    Is our beloved JHK finally starting to get it? We’ll see if his next article falls back into the “Despite all the losing, we’re actually winning fantasy”.

    So after writing on our slates “The Federal government is broken and CANNOT be fixed” forty times we must all write an essay entitled “So what do we do now?”

    There’s no single path but one idea would be to adopt our own “soft coup”. We can’t do it individually but it could be done state by state. Picking the most popular and localized cause is easy – the invasion of our stated by masses of illegal aliens.

    Each like-minded state could pass laws severely restricting illegal aliens’ ability to enter or remain in said state. Guards were recently posted at state borders to advise legal American residents that they ought not cross state lines due to the “covid risk” fantasy so the precedent exists. Then states could EXPEL illegal invaders, either through a large hole in the border fence (there are many) or by busing them to blue cities.

    Don’t formally secede but but embark on state by state “civil disobedience”. The “Supreme Court” will reliably rule against such effort so IGNORE THEM. Then we’ll see. If the Blob is willing to “send F16s then the states will either resist the oppression or capitulate but force them to make the first move.

      It’s a little more than state by state. It’s more like region by region. In my state of Massachusetts, the citizens are hopelessly out of touch, and residents here have infected our neighboring states like New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

    “DA’s and AG’s who make election promises to “go after” individuals without such niceties as probable cause.”

    Speaking of niceties, it looks like that land in Texas was desired as part of somebody’s big plans, and they dispensed with the niceties of acquiring it through legal means.

    Similar to what happened in Lahaina, and probably similar to what is happening right now over in Israel.

    New York’s AG has also dispensed with the nicety of jurisdiction in vowing to go after beef producers over their environmental crimes.

    That would allow the beef producer’s assets to be seized, wouldn’t it?

    At least some of the Texas property in question belongs to a major beef producer, doesn’t it?

          There are three ways to consider God in our current day and age.

          1. God is there and his/her/their plan is being executed exactly as designed.

          2. God does not exist. Our planet was seeded by aliens or we are simply a project of evolution that started when a chunk of rancid algae decided it wanted to be a tadpole. We are on our own.

          3. There is a God, but, after God created us and our planet he took off to play tiddlywinks with his buddy and doesn’t give a rats rear-end about any of us. We are again, on our own.

            @ Cankerpuss:

            You never see anyone define what they mean by “God” in these discussions.

            God is perfect love, goodness, beauty, life, and truth. Most of us recognize these things when we see them in the world, so we have a dim idea about what they are. (Very dim.) We humans cannot even imagine this perfection. People who have had NDEs try to describe it, but it’s beyond human conception.

            You’d think it would be a no-brainer to be in favor of God in the conflict between good and evil, but apparently it’s not. Maybe this is because we have so many influences persuading us that evil is good and vice-versa.

            I will because I don’t live in fear of beings people made up just to instill fear into others in order to control and abuse them. To me religion is no better than any other form of manipulation and slavery. It’s all mind rape to me. They invented Christianity, Islam, and all of that for the same reasons.

            What makes him any different from a human being that does what he does? I’ve just about had it with religion and people with God like complexes both. Sorry to say it but you serve a GOD that believes in human sacrificing and killing people when he gets angry. If anything Christianity is no better than Satanism. The only difference is, Satanism doesn’t pretend to be self righteous while instructing people to do evil deeds. It’s at least for the most part more honest than Christianity is that lies, and manipulates it’s believers into accepting the killing of people is perfectly okay because their GOD says so.

            I know all about the Old Testament and that’s the whole reason why Christians tried to write it off like it doesn’t exist… Why? Because the Old Testament made GOD a vicious tyrant with an anger problem worse than my own.

            So they decided to rewrite everything with the New Testament. …Religion makes people blind to the truth, and they go along with whatever someone tells them to because FEAR. Therefore making themselves easy to manipulate and exploit. That’s the whole reason anyone even believes in that stuff, fear of hell. I refuse to be manipulated.

          Jarek, I don’t believe God to be the benevolent loving “father” that is often presented in Christian doctrines.

          First of all, God is a jealous God, he says so himself in his scriptures.

          Second, God gets pissed off.

          Third, God has no tolerance for sin. None. Period.

          Fourth, God is subject to his own rules. If God creates a commandment and then breaks his own commandment how can God expect his creations to have faith in him. This of course renders God somewhat less powerful and perhaps not nearly as powerful as the God-fearing like to believe.

          Fifth, God may not be as loving as people think he is. Like any father towards his children, sometimes a little “tough love” is necessary to teach a lesson.

          Sixth, God is a God of vengeance. He says many times in his own scriptures “Vengeance is mine.” I don’t think he’s talking about video games.

          I believe God to be a perfectly righteous God but I also believe God has limitations as to what he can or cannot do to his children and that he may not be the benevolent patriarch many religions teach of him.

          Just my opinion. Nothing more.

When they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put out his hand to hold the ark, because the oxen nearly upset it. And the anger of the LORD burned against Uzza, so He struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.

          You make it sound as if God just arbitrarily told Moses and the gang to exterminate the Philistines for the hell of it. Wrong. One, in order to take and hold land, you have to get rid of the population, meaning eviction by force at a bare minimum. Second, it was a test of the Israelites’ ability to follow orders, which they naturally failed, leading to problems that exist to this day. Three, the Philistines worshipped other gods. Remember the thing about “having no other gods before (or beside) Me?” That means the followers of Dagon, Ba’al, and other pagan gods needed to go, as did the pagan deities themselves.

            Jarek, think of God as a father whose job it is to groom a species into a respectable condition. We , as a species are a magnificent failure as our evil sides, our own little devils, dominate our good sides.

            Our church is studying Revelation right now. It is scary when you total up the number of folks that are going to be wiped out during the final judgements of God. 90%? Only 90% will measure up?

            God destroyed the earth and its people once already and has destroyed whole civilizations directly. He also walks away from evil humans and lets them destroy themselves. We are living that, IMHO.

          Power people hate reins on their power, that is why the Founders made the Constitution, to rein in the power of the power people of the federal government. The power people in there now have discovered they can just ignore the Constitution and the sheeple will just go along. With their hands out.

    Wow! Accurate descriptions of what’s going on. Going local in unpopulated areas seems the best way to survive whatever is coming. But I wouldn’t say de-coupling is the “only” way. I heard Bret Weinstein of your opening quote, recently say that he thinks RFKJr is our best hope. I’ve seen polls that show Trump and the other guy are both disliked by over half the voters. That means if either of those win, huge numbers of Americans will be disappointed. In that case, “civil” war seems to me to be very likely. However, RFKJr is a third choice. He is not as disliked as either of the opponents. He’s familiar with politics and knows the CIA killed his uncle and father, He’s well educated and knows what Big Pharma is and does. He’s not without faults. I disagree strongly with several of his old liberal positions. But in the darkest time of the hysterical panic of the Covid, when tyrannical fools like Howard Stern and even the ex-governor, Swarzenegger, were calling for punishments for the non-vaccinated, Kennedy’s book on the liar and mass murderer, Fauic, appeared. It was like a ray of sunshine in a dark storm. I decided right then to vote for and work for Kennedy if the opportunity arises. I haven’t had any reason to change my mind on that. It sounds crazy, but I predict that he will be our next president.

      Kennedy is wrong about who killed his uncle. I used to believe the conspiracy talk but then got educated on the matter and saw the conclusive proof versus the unsupported conjecture.

      But that isn’t really the issue regarding Kennedy for President. I wouldn’t judge him on that. I admire his work and stance on several things. His sincerity and commitment is unquestionable. I’d like to see him involved in the next administration, if there is one, but Trump is the man for the job of President. It’s even rightfully his now, as we write.

        Please take a moment to continue your education;


        The Carcano family of weapons are generally recognized as the crudest, most poorly built and designed, and most inaccurate battle rifle of the 20th Century. By far. I own, I mean I used to own, a number of these weapons, and I will state with absolute certainty;

        I could not make the shot that Oswald was credited with;
        US Marine Corps snipers could not make that shot, with Oswald’s weapon, and they tried.

        You DO know that Oswald attempted to assassinate General Walker with the weapon in question? From 30 feet? He missed. Researchers later determined that the cheap scope on t he weapon was not collimated to the bore…that means it was looking someplace else other than the bullet trajectory…and was loose.

        “Kennedy, the inscrutable assassin Lee Harvey Oswald crouched behind a fence in an upscale Dallas neighborhood and aimed his rifle at the window of an ultra-conservative firebrand named Edwin Walker, a former U.S. Army general. Oswald fired, but the bullet caromed off the windowsill and missed Walker’s head by an inch.”

        The only way I could accept that Oswald made that shot is that his shot was made with the guiding hand of Jesus…and why Jesus would want Kennedy dead is another matter for speculation.

          I shared a taxi with two Brits in Austin who had just been to Dallas and went to the Book Depository.

          They said they were not allowed anywhere near the window that LHO supposedly made the shot from. I have heard that most people who looked out that window came to the same conclusion as you- the shot was impossible.
          So they fixed that problem by closing off access to the window by the public.

          The Brits and I then had a jolly old time talking about conspiracy theories we didn’t believe. They were big on the Diana killing, but I asked them about the Skirpals, and why the English didn’t throw a fit about the authorities starving the cat for a month, and then killing it. They said “WE DID!” throw a fit, but no one cared. They didn’t believe the Most Deadly Poison Ever story either.
          Poor cat.

          Ely it was an 88 yard shot, which doesn’t seem impossible for an ex Marine. He did miss with one shot. The Manlicher-Carcano was in service for 80 years so it must have had something going for it.

            Yeah…at about 13 mph…a caveman could do it.

            On the positive side, the Carcano rifle usually was found in good shape…only dropped once.

            Remember, he missed Walker at 30 feet…

            The kill shot was from the front. That’s the one that blew JFK’s brains out onto the back of the car.

            That’s a helluva shot from 88 yards behind.

            But, you know, if Allen Dulles said it happened, it must be true.

    I haven’t seen many connect the dots on why doctors seem to have changed from patient advocates to establishment goons. It tracks back to Obamacare and the requirement for endless data capture and reporting via the required EHR (Electronic Health Record). Complying with the new Obamacare regulations required physicians to purchase an EHR that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars along with a annual service contract whose costs were in the same neighborhood, to keep up with monthly changes in the reporting requirements.

    This pushed nearly every doctor out of private practice and into the employ of some corporation or hospital system that had the means to comply with the EHR requirements.

    Hence, doctors became completely dependent upon paychecks from the corporations, and their practice was dictated by the policies of the system that employed them.

    As an example, my daughter-in-law is a pharmacy tech in a small US city working for such a hospital system/corporation. When Covid broke out, many of the primary care physicians were prescribing Ivermectin to their patients, and apparently were observing positive results. She knew because she processed the prescriptions.

    As word was circulating among physicians that Ivermectin worked, a memo came out from the hospital to all of its physician and pharmacy employees that Ivermectin was not to be used to treat Covid. All of the prescriptions stopped. Had they all been in private practice, (as they were prior to Obamacare), they would not have had to toe the line.

    Yes, if they were informed and noble they would have resigned from the hospital. And then do what? Every such system had the same policy. It was obey or try to get a job at Starbuck’s, where the competition is fierce.

    All of this has been going on for a long time.

    Ok, just today we learned what The Blob intends to do with the illegals they’ve invited in. A few years back, because we are a Welcoming State (Connecticut) it was decided to grant illegal aliens Drivers Licenses. Anywhere from 90,000-100,000 signed up, paralyzing the whole system for about a year. To belay concerns that the illegals would use the DL to access welfare, or for voter registration, the licenses are marked DO (Driving Only). Today we find out that the DO designation will be removed, and illegals will be issued the same DLs citizens receive. It’s a backhanded way for them to vote & get state welfare benefits.

    That’s what the Dems plan to do with illegal aliens.

    • Islander March 4, 2024 at 12:33 pm #

      The last time I renewed my license (Mass.) I was told that henceforth only biometric licenses can bu used as an ID. It cost more than the “regular” license and required quite a lot more background information.

      It would be interesting to do an experiment and find out whether illegals holding one of the nonbiometric licenses can succeed in going to a town hall or city hall and registering to vote, using t he liecense as an official ID

      The other aspect of this is that I thought it was a basic right of American citizens not to be required to carry an identity card. I guess the nonbiometric license might fulfill that requirement since it is not supposed to be accepted as an official ID.

      SS cards also are not supposed to be accepted as official IDs.

      In the past, though, licenses have always been accepted as valid IDs. When I produce my license as an ID, no one has yet asked me whether it is a biometric one.

      I’m not sure what the bottom line here is. .

        In my line of work and for the last 10 years I had to get a TWIC ( Transportation Worker Identity Card) card. The card was required to access any secure maritime facilities. These often include ships, ferries, dockside warehouses and port customs offices. Anyone who needs to have unaccompanied access to Coast Guard credentialed merchant ships or transportation vessels must have a TWIC.

        TWIC credentials are distributed to employees after they have submitted a form of biometric information, like fingerprints. TWIC holders must also pass a security threat assessment administered by a TSA officer. A TWIC features both a computer chip and a magnetized bar which contain the holder’s biometric data, so it can be either scanned or swiped at access points.

        These TWIC cards are also valid for any form of travel in the US, like train, air etc. I have had arguments with clueless TSA staff at airports who don’t know what that means. I always won…

        Occasionally I have been approached on site by armed Coast Guard to verify the card against a fingerprint scan. It was a lot of fun as my VT issued card had an id of 000002.

    Illegal alien Jose Antonio Ibarra hacked up the body and skull of 22-year-old nursing student Laken Hope Riley as she went on her morning run. It has been suggested that Ms Riley would still be alive today if she hadn’t resisted Mr. Ibarra’s attack. Rather than fight back, she should have willfully submitted to being raped by him. Therefore, we can all benefit from this advice and stay alive by offering no resistance when we are attacked by illegal aliens. Problem solved!

    • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2024 at 12:42 pm #

      It was also suggested that this young coed was dressed ‘provocatively’, that is, she was wearing shorts.

      That was from AP, which failed to mention that this Jose chap was an illegal. He was simply described as an assailant.

      See how those lying media sonsabitches obfuscate the truth? Nothing makes me happier when they have mass layoffs, file for bankruptcy, or at the very least get called out for their mendacity.

    “The USA is a runaway train with a dead man in the engineer’s seat.”

    United States Incorporated and its Subjects are on a train where Dark State Pirates long ago pushed out the legit engineer and took full control of all the levers… and the destination of where the US Inc. Pirate Train will ultimately crash and burn.

    We haven’t had a legit Engineer running this Train of State since at least 1913. And then we had a stark reminder of this again in 1963… and 2000… and 2001… and 2020. Captured American passengers need an occasional reminder to keep quiet and scared in their seats while grabbing the backs of the seats in front of them.

    … “the other less than half just remain fixed on their phones and laptop screens. They can’t be bothered to look out the window.”

    Everyone needs a reason to live. For some, the object of Life is to try to be a good person and contribute something to the World. For others it’s all about tending to their kids. Others try to keep the lights on and the water flowing through our taps.

    But for the vast majority of today’s version of human beings… it’s all about fixing your gaze upon the screen of the Magic Box of Dancing Pixels. That’s the purpose of Life. Shut everything else out and keep staring at the Magic Little Box… which is today’s version of the Golden Calf false god.

    “The war in Ukraine. We started it in 2014 to mess with Russia…”

    It actually started in the late ‘90s when crazed Neocons declared that United States Incorporated has some kind of Manifest Destiny to conquer the World and be the new Empire for the Ages. All this death and crap that has gone on since then has been in service of this sickly and twisted gospel of World Domination which is a meme that never seems to go away on this Planet. The faces who aspire to the The Empire may change over the years. But the deranged desire They have is shared by all of the Them. A Brotherhood of Empire and Death.

    “A fourth item on this list is the US economy which has been overwhelmed by maladministration of an overgrown monster bureaucracy, and the gross (perhaps fatal) mismanagement of the government’s money.”

    United States Incorporated has not had a real economy since when all of America’s real industry got shut down and off-loaded to various slave labor hamlets around the World.

    A real economy is based upon building real things, from steel girders to toasters to airplanes that actually fly without doors flying off and engines too heavy for the fuselage to stay in flight. US Inc. hasn’t had a real economy since the 1950s ane 1960s. It’s all been an engineless glide-path downward until the inevitable happens to gliders without power or direction.

    You don’t have a real economy based upon running Dancing Pixel Data Gathering Honeypots or banksters pushing pixelized digits around in databases or phony and harmful Social Justice Warrior horse manure positions that exist to divide Americans and perpetuate guilt over slavery which no American today had a damn thing to do with. Phony people holding down phony jobs that accomplish no good purpose. That is nothing to build an economy around.

    “Corporate medicine — that is, your doctor, and your hospitals — is a sinking Titanic of grift and chaos.”

    This is another example of the Phony Economy described above. A medical cartel populated by White Coat whores that turned the Hippocratic Oath on its head so that They now all pledge, ‘To Do NOTHING BUT Harm…’.

    “What are we going to do about any of this?”

    Come on now. You already know. The answer is literally right in your hand. It’s calling to you… it owns you… you don’t own it…

    It’s our reason for living and our faithful companion on this Train Ride to Oblivion…. that passes all the endless brownfields where proud American factories once thrived.

    “Hundreds of their deputies should be liable for prosecution, and so should many of the other prominent characters in the Covid Saga: Fauci, Birx, Collins, Baric, Bourla, Daszak, Califf, Woodcock, Hahn, and many more.”

    My take: Don’t assume that these individuals are bright but simply irresponsible.

    I suspect that the individuals at the top of the Medical-Industrial complex, like those at the top of many of our bureaucracies, and like certainly most of our politicians, are simply not very bright.

    If I’m wrong and they are intelligent beings, then they are indeed evil and capable of perpetrating the worst war crimes.

    Yet another FUBAR: There is a 50 caliber bullet headed right toward the head of every person in the US right now! And, very few know or understand it.

    Understand that the US$ is no longer backed by petrol, i.e. the petro Dollar disintegrated when the Saudis joined BRICS+. It is now pure FIAT, meaning it is backed by nothing (and no its not backed by the US military which is running out of money, ammo and personnel). In mid June, the USCorp must pay off maturing USTreasury bonds in the range of ~8Trillion$ and in July, another 2Trillion$s. The printing required to avoid a default (i.e. USCorp bankruptcy) will be around 10 TRILLION$ from now until about 4 months from now, +/-). We import most of what we use, including petrol. No one is going to accept the US$ for payment, in any ratio near current valuation levels, after mid summer. The BRICS+ meetings have indicated that they think that, for international trade, the USD$ should be cut by 30% immediately and then another 30%+ in the fall. They will refuse any dollar based trading that does not reflect those devaluations.

    Get ready.

      The USA is under attack by both the WEF and BRICS+, from different directions. In the past, we were strong enough to put global fights down. No longer. Our own government wants us to be weakened so that globalists, the elite, can finally take over. The advent of BRICS+ is a wrinkle that, IMHO, they did not see coming. Ukraine and Israel are proxies for the creeps in DC trying to get out of the mess they have made.

        Gold is $2,126/ounce today. That should give us some idea of the declining value of the dollar. It hasn’t been all that long since it was a bit shocking for the price to go to $2,000/ounce.

          I have a close friend who retired to Mexico and he is saying that many shops will no longer take US$; in the past they were rabid for US$. He also says its way more expensive than it was just a few years ago. Eventually Mexico will wake up to the fact that they have the world’s largest silver deposits in the ground; they will eventually be a rich country, unless the commies take over.

    Rasmussen report on the super-elite

    The last area which Rasmussen says shocked even him, was the question surrounding the elites’ amorality. He found that nearly 70% of the super-elites would be fine with their candidate cheating rather than losing an election. Only a tiny 7% of regular voters harbored such amoral predilections:

    Rasmussen said that this project has revealed the scariest single polling number he has seen in nearly 35 years of studying popular opinion. According to his data, 35 percent of the elite 1 percent (and 69 percent of the politically obsessed elite 1 percent) said they would rather cheat than lose a close election. Among average Americans, 93 percent reject cheating and accept defeat in an honest election. Only 7 percent reported they would cheat. -source

    This is most stunning if only for the reason that it presents by far the widest margin of difference of any of the other questions. It alone explains many of society’s ills, including how readily the influence-wielding elite were already proven to use their considerable wealth and reach to put a ‘thumb on the scales’ of the 2020 election.

    It’s not surprising, then, that this pervasive culture of amorality reflects in all the current narratives leading to the 2024 election:

    Jarek: This is an interesting study of the plateau below the capstone. These folks aren’t thinkers, but receivers from above. You don’t get to this level by being independent or not being good with whatever “they” want – like cheating or the ethnic replacement of Whites. See link below.

      It appears that Douglas Macgregor/OUR COUNTRY OUR CHOICE (OCOC) is formulating an agenda to counter the party of chaos if an opportunity should present.

      Start at 35:10
      Colonel Doug Macgregor: BCM Podcast Ep. 20 3/1/2024

      Are you aware of any other agenda to counter the party of chaos?

      In the first part of the video, one can see the evolution, where he is stepping over the line and discussing the forbidden.

      • TPTB-USA March 5, 2024 at 3:04 am #

        OUR COUNTRY OUR CHOICE (OCOC) appears to be an organization with the goal of representing the population.

        “I am retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, a combat veteran who had the privilege of serving as a Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense under President Trump. Currently, I serve as the CEO of Our Country Our Choice (OCOC), a combined people’s movement and media company whose vision is to identify millions of like-minded Americans and build the most extensive group of informed activists ever assembled.

        Our country is being systematically destroyed. Americans see this and know we will suffer unless we stop this. However, without unity we will not succeed.

        Our plan involves everyone who loves this country. Our Country needs you more than ever. You can imagine what millions of united Americans are capable to do. We can save this country. We can compel change in Washington, D.C. Do not underestimate the power of numbers when we are united. …

        Our members must help us to grow. If every one of you will recruit 10 new members, we will be 1M strong movement in few weeks.”

        Can OCOC counter globalism? Can 50M OCOC members counter globalism?

    • TPTB-USA March 5, 2024 at 12:40 pm #

      Jim, how about facilitating and/or orchestrating a collaboration of work for submission to OCOC? I say OCOC because after watching Tucker’s discussion with Xi Van Fleet about the Chinese Cultural Revolution, I am not aware of another movement to counter the current globalist movement, and Macgregor impresses me as a good spokesperson for the opposition.

      You have shared your knowledge and cultivated an army of professionals who share related information and discuss the subject of your posts, and could generate content for OCOC.

      My 2 cent assessment of the Globalism page is that it could benefit by having an introduction of the big picture and connecting the dots on down to “Joe Biden” and his Build Back Better agenda. The page/link needs to be structured in such a manner that the individual that knows nothing about any of this is walked through the basic facts, with references, in a concise manner so that they are not overwhelmed, and then is provided links to access more detailed information.

      The lady who generated the DIGITAL IDENTIFICATION video has a talent that could be utilized. I would need to watch it several times to make sense of what she was trying to convey and conclude, so perhaps she would be open to suggestions.

      This globalist movement has had the advantage of years to collaborate and develop their network and content; but the opposition has the advantage of morality, truth, transparency, and a treasure trove of law-fare, lies, and deceit to discredit them.

      I am thinking that you could host some pages where you could tap some individuals to collaborate on content generation, put out a general call for specific reference information, I am under the impression that a few posters are knowledgeable about legalese, and some of the existing OCOC content could definitely utilize Q’s help.

      How about formulating a call to action and see if you can generate any interest?

      • TPTB-USA March 6, 2024 at 12:25 pm #

        I suspect that I could pick a president based on three criteria: (i) I do not like to be lied to, (ii) I do not like to be deceived, and (iii) I like freedom, so as to keep my options in life open, and do not want some government micromanaging my personal life.

        Concerning being lied to and being deceived, “Joe Biden’s” management of migration/immigration is indefensible!

        So, all that is needed is to present an honest objective assessment of the issues relating to migration/immigration. The facts are that the UN has the 2030 Agenda, where they discuss the issue and incorporate their solution. The UN has a formal agreement with the WEF to accelerate implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The WEF presents their agenda of The Great Reset to facilitate implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Build Back Better is part of the Great Reset. The G-7 leaders all ran on the Build Back Better platform. “Joe Biden” was one of those leaders. Considering the manner in which “Joe Biden” has implemented and managed his aspect of migration/immigration, and all the consequences of his agenda, who in their right mind would vote for another 4 years of “Joe Biden”?

        One does not need to insert their conclusion, or disparage “Joe Biden” as I have done. If the population is presented with the facts, they will figure it out, and for those who are honest with themselves, the only conclusion one can come to is that they have been lied to and deceived by “Joe Biden”.

        Now, concerning freedom. I think Doug Macgregor has assessed and come to the proper conclusion: that the government has more that enough to deal with if they just focus on managing themselves, and they should not be in the business of dividing the population.

        So, dump the divisive issues, focus only on the consequences and management of “Joe Biden’s” migration/immigration (which is a main vein to the ore body), and “DRILL BABY DRILL”!

        Once the population has been introduced to the lies and deceit of “Joe Biden”, they will be receptive to an objective discussion of the other issues (DIGITAL IDENTIFICATION, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), WHO Treaty, etc., etc., etc. …).

        Does anyone want to engage to try and save the country?

      Not too worry, Sweden has joined NATO & stands ready to throw its military might into the battle with Russia. I recently viewed video of an Armed Forces parade in Stockholm; the front ranks were female soldiers, and what soldiers! They looked pretty sweet in their tight fitting sky blue uniforms, blond curls tumbling out from under their caps. Long legged & graceful, those ladies knew how to captivate a crowd. Now this is a military parade I could get into! The guidon was carrying the Swedish National flag, the rest were proudly holding multi-colored Pride flags. Crowds cheered as they passed by ~ it was all very colorful, and the music was rousing.

      Much is being made of Sweden joining NATO ‘We got Russia surrounded’. These Swedish gals will be fighting Russian infantry around Leningrad, part of Army Group North, in horrific arctic conditions with temps at -40°F, living in filthy trenches carved into the dirt, covered with lice, living on cold potatoes & ice water, and sleeping in the mud while Russian artillery bursts overhead.

          Well, Sweden has tens of thousands of militant Islamists living amongst them now. Not sure how patriotic they are or whether or not they would enlist to fight for Sweden. These Honored guests are quite adept in the use of firearms however, as Sweden has gone from last to first in the number of homicides inside European countries.

          If the Swedes are/were/and always will be pussies, how did they subdue the mighty Finns?

          Why should Sweden have joined WWII? Because “everybody else is doing it?” So that they could lose a large proportion of their population and have their cities smashed?

          And which side do you suppose Sweden would have joined?

          I suppose Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey are also pussies for not joining in on the fun. Guess which side they would have joined? The same as Sweden would be my guess.

          Sweden is chomping at the bit to go to war with Russia now, joining the Big Boys club NATO – and you still call them cowards?

          I guess the US is a chickenshit, frilly panty-wearing country too for not pouring troops in to help our steadfast ally Ukraina, not standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel as the Palestinians have them on the ropes, not bombing Yemen past the stone-age into the Pre-Cambrian…

        Once upon a time there was an engineer
        Drove a locomotive both far and near
        Accompanied by a monkey who would sit on a stool
        Watching everything the engineer would move

        One day the engineer wanted a bite to eat
        He left the monkey sitting on the driver’s seat
        The monkey pulled the throttle, locomotive jumped the gun
        Doing ninety miles an hour down the mainline run

        Big locomotive right on time
        Big locomotive coming down the line
        Big locomotive number ninety nine
        Left the engineer with a worried mind

        The engineer called up the despatcher on the phone
        Tell him all about his locomotive was gone
        Get on the wire, switch operator to right
        ‘Cause the monkey’s got the mainline sewed up tight

        Switch operator got the message in time
        Said there’s a northbound train on the same mainline
        Open up the switch, I’m gonna let it through the hole
        ‘Cause the monkey’s got the locomotive under control

      When I was a kid, I visited a train museum– possibly, The Canadian Railway Museum– and recall liking it a fair bit. You can see some trains that look like the JHK’s CFN article’s drawing:


    • Amman March 5, 2024 at 1:27 pm #

      A train is about a journey and the US is on a journey
      (like all nations are)

      I am reminded of this line from a Bob Dylan song:

      “Senhor, can you tell us where we’re heading?
      Lincoln county road or Armageddon?”

      If it is Armageddon, then we are all dead
      and maybe we might discover that death itself is
      another journey in some undiscovered country
      and not an end.

      Bon Voyage.

        When we die, a centillion years could pass, but from our dead perspectives, it might as well be a plank-length time and where ‘we’ are instantaneously born again in another universe, maybe the same one, recycled.

    It took less than a day.

    Congressional Dems are setting up a bill to take Trump off of primary and general ballots based on Insurrection amendment.

    This damn federal government is out of control.

    Trump has not been accused of or convicted of any insurrection. The debacle that the Dem House and two asshat GOPers put together was a kangaroo court, typical of a third world country, not here.

    That and the whole damn thing was not even close to an insurrection but a riot by very pissed off people who felt their votes had been fraudulently cheated on.

    How come all the destruction caused by the riots of 2021 were not investigated and dealt with?

    Because the Leftist Deep State controls this country.

    Don’t get too excited, Dems, any bill has to pass the House.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 4, 2024 at 9:16 pm #


      Actually John it was during 2020 when the riots were going on, and as for the January 6 thing, that whole scenario was instigated, and setup because there were fake Trump supporters in the crowd. Plus there was that fake pipe bomb story where the feds planted fake pipe bombs…It’s crazy how criminal the Dems are…Hard to believe people can support them. Not all the free give always in the world can make me want to support that shitty destructive lot. But I wouldn’t back the Reps either. Because to be fair they are actually helping the damn Dems. At least some of them are.

      • Blackbird March 5, 2024 at 6:48 pm #

        A bunch of US citizens walk into the Capitol Building, mostly staying behind the velvet ropes – and it’s an “Insurrection!”

        Another bunch of US citizens burn, loot, and murder their way through major cities, and it’s a “Mostly Peaceful Demonstration!”

      Maybe we can rest easy in the knowledge that Trump is unlikely do be able to do much at this point anyway, whether he gets in or not. It might even be fitting if he doesn’t and isn’t the one left holding the bag if or when it all comes falling out.

      • The Man They Call Zazelle March 4, 2024 at 11:16 pm #

        …I mean, they’ve been trying to take about half a billion dollars from him or his business(es) so far and even evict him from doing biz in NY. Might as well order him to some tree to be tied and flogged while Trump, himself, shoots his foot.

    Strange Bedfellow Clusterfucks &…

    “The Myth of Symmetry

    “The allegation that fascists and anti-fascists are equally bad has been advanced most famously by Donald Trump himself in his response to the events in Charlottesville. He suggested that the problem was an
    ‘egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides’, refusing to say a word about the fascists who murdered Heather Heyer. This should tell us something about those who describe fascists and anti-fascists as symmetrical.

    To equate those who fight for freedom and equality with those who want an autocratic state to enforce hierarchies is to reserve all legitimacy for the state alone—which is itself an autocratic position. It means celebrating the legalism of passive spectators over the heroes who fought the rise of dictatorships in Italy, Germany, Spain, Chile, Greece, and a hundred other nations. It means congratulating those who keep their hands clean while their neighbors are rounded up and imprisoned, deported, or killed.

    We have to become adept at spelling out the ethical differences between fascism and anti-fascism, and all the justifications for forms of direct action that can actually be effective in this struggle. We need allies from many different walks of life who can help us make this case to the public at large.

    Unfortunately, we can’t count on everyone on the Left to behave responsibly. In ‘How ‘Antifa’ Mirrors the ‘Alt-Right,’ ‘ the same Chris Hedges who assisted the state in dividing and repressing the Occupy movement reappears to perform the same service in relation to the movements against fascism and the Trump administration.

    The irony of a war journalist perennially accusing others of being driven by a lust for adrenaline should not be lost on anyone. It is worse still that Hedges, as a journalist, arrogates himself the right to pass judgment on the events in Charlottesville from a distance rather than deferring to people like Cornel West who were actually there putting their bodies on the line. But the true irony here is that Hedges purports to be warning against precisely the problem that he himself is creating. ‘By brawling in the streets’, Hedges alleges, ‘antifa allows the corporate state… to use the false argument of moral equivalency to criminalize the work of all anti-capitalists.’ Actually, it is Hedges who is equipping the state to do this, by attributing ‘the same lust for violence’ to anti-fascists that he believes motivates fascists. He could just as easily use his soapbox to debunk this moral equivalency, but he lacks the moral courage—he simply cannot resist performing the same kind of ‘self-advertisement for moral purity’ that he accuses others of.” ~ Not Your Grandfather’s Antifascism: Anti-Fascism Has Arrived.

      Zaz, the State of Anarchy you seek is happening at this moment in Haiti. Armed street gangs, who already ruled 80% of Port o Prince, broke open the country’s two largest prisons & freed all the prisoners over 4000 in all. Now the gangs have coalesced under one charismatic leader who calls himself ‘Barbecue’. First things first: armories and police stations have been assaulted & defeated, and weapons & ammo siezed. Everybody, and I mean everybody, is roaming the streets with fully auto M-4s and M-16s. Streets are blocked, police officers are being executed in the streets, buildings & vehicles burning, no food, no clean water… it’s hell on earth.

      Anarchy reigns.

      • benr March 5, 2024 at 8:12 am #

        So a normal day in Haiti.
        They made a deal channeling through a loa with Cimeries to kick the french out of Haiti and are paying the price for it till this day.

        This deal shows in everything coming out of Haiti nothing but pain and suffering.
        Interesting that so many have been sucked into this maelstrom of suffering to make profit.
        Billions of dollars have gone missing from the Clinton Bush Haiti fund imagine that?

        • BackRowHeckler March 5, 2024 at 8:37 am #

          Ben, what’s happening in Haiti at the moment seems to be a measure above anything that’s gone before. I mean right now gunmen have the main airport in the Capital surrounded and are shooting it out with the Haitian army (such as it is). Of course all flights in an out have been suspended. DR has sealed the border, what’s left of the Haitian govt is in hiding, and the PM is in Kenya. The only force that could get in there and straightened things out would be the US Marines in an amphibious landing but Biden already said no US intervention.

          • benr March 5, 2024 at 9:24 am #

            Pretty sure there is a grift going on here still to this day.
            How long before it comes out Hunter Biden was whoring and snorting coke in Haiti?

            Or the opposite there is zero money to be made in Haiti at this time.

          • stelmosfire March 5, 2024 at 11:40 am #

            Well Haiti has some very strict gun laws. What? Gun laws don’t work? I see nothing but pictures of gangs armed with AK’s and AR’s. Potatohead has already pledged cash. That’ll do a lot of good. Money down the crapper.

          • BackRowHeckler March 5, 2024 at 1:18 pm #

            But who’ll take the cash, there is no government?

            Street Commander ‘Barbecue’ is the man in charge now. Sure he’ll take a sea bag full of cash, but what will he do with it? Community Outreach is not on the agenda.

      • TruthSeeker1986 March 5, 2024 at 8:13 am #


        Well, How long will it stay like that though? They wouldn’t be able to defeat American Law enforcement like that. So it’s like I said if they come here with that shit, I’m pretty sure they would get their asses kicked. I mean so far how many gangs in America have tried to fully take over the country like they just did in Haiti? Even MS-13 isn’t running around executing cops in the streets. Although I feel the U.S. Gov allows a lot of these violent assholes into the country because they want them to do something to us.

        • Uncle Bob March 5, 2024 at 12:28 pm #

          We now have Venezuelan gangs running amok. They’re allegedly worse than MS-13. I guess the plan to keep dumping piles of shit on us until we scream “Enough! Save us! We don’t care what you have to do, just make it stop!” continues apace.

      Your Antifa movement was beating the shit out of old people when groups like the proud boys were not around to stomp their asses into the dirt.
      Todays Fascists are not your grandfathers Fascists but your Communists/Marxists/Socialists are still up to their old tricks.
      Fascism is hardly the issue de jour but the push for Marxism sure is.
      There is a world wide propaganda effort from Marxist to include web sites tailored to each country and language with enough poison seeping out of them to fool the weak minded.
      David Webb did a pretty good show on it last week on Sirius Xm Patriot radio station 125.
      -Trasnscript from David Webb show.

      Thursday primarily, and Friday, I took you to Marxist University. Well, as I went off the air on Friday, and I went back to check on the website to see the latest, uh, from marxist.org. And thanks to a tip from a friend who said, pay attention. And by the way, to some of you who’ve responded on X and otherwise, that you’re paying attention, uh, you need to keep paying attention because on Friday, they announced the, well, the big announcement, 100 days to go until the World School of Communism program and announcement now officially, 97 days, 16 hours, 49 minutes, and 22 seconds, uh, from the big global event. Uh, they’ve already had one based in Naples, Italy. They will be expanding from the 10th to the 15th of June. And for those of you who might laugh and say, ah, just wasting our time listening to this, I’m not, they’re celebrating the year of Len. There is a new magazine out, even a new magazine, uh, targeting the, uh, north to targeting North Africa and the Middle East, the new Freedom and Communism Magazine, 14th year for Revolutionary Magazine. So we, they have the RCA, now we have re revolutionary communists in the us. They launched in January, uh, adding to the other two groups I’ve talked about for years. And now they’re stepping out with the international cooperation and, uh, collusion, if you will, to spread their belief system. And some that will say, eh, never. That’s not gonna go anywhere. David, you’re wasting our time taking us to Marxist University. You should pay close attention. This group has been added on the internet, but prior to that, since 1998, they have been effective on every continent in getting people into office that agree with them. And now they are taking the next step, if you will, to go forward and push their ideas and make no bones about it. The secret, a secret, one of the secret to Marxisms successes is that they slowly infiltrate existing structures. This new, if you will, or next generation of Marxism, doesn’t take the the outward revolutionary approach that Karl Marx wanted. They’ve opted for subtlety to shape the way generations, uh, speak and think. And the new left, uh, going back to the 1970s to where we are today, uh, realized that a violent revolution against the government was not really going to be the most successful path. Throwing bricks at windows, screaming at police officers and rioting and more, uh, it still is a tool to be used to, to cause cultural and, and, and community disarray. But they began to get much more subtle political essays, books, uh, inserting in into organizations, inserting themselves into organizations. Remember, just a few weeks ago, while no one caught it on television, I did. And I put the screen grab up for all of you to see if President Biden speaking to the UAW led, by the way, the UAW, uh, led by Sean Fain, a, a clear avowed leftist and pro Hamas supporter who stands there with Rashida Tle and Ilan Omar and other members of the squad. But in the room with Joe Biden. I don’t know whether he knew this or not. I’ll say that. Were two black ladies in that one screenshot. There was a wider shot, as I later found out. But those two ladies were wearing their proudly, we wear red t-shirts. Maybe I’ll post that again, for those who don’t believe me. We wear red as part of the approach, softly and subtly to insert communism into organizations and activists who then work their way through the organization until they’re in positions of power and influence. And from whether you wanna call it the seventies to now. And clearly from 1998 to now using the internet as an effective tool in, I, I never did count the number of languages. I actually just, I think I stopped at probably 40 or close to it. I think that’s about it. Uh, 40 or so different languages on all continents. The international Marxists are acting and they’re moving, and they’re organizing, and they’re bringing more people in. They’re organizing well-planned events with marches in cities and watch parties in Dallas, and marches in Boston and New York and, uh, the like. And now they’re rolling out the International Revolutionary Communist International will be the launch during these six days of talks and discussions. And all over the world, the communists are electing their local delegates who will attend in person in Italy. Now, there’s not going to be tens of thousands of communists showing up in Italy, maybe if you get lucky, a thousand or so showing up. But that’s not the point. The point is from a central point in Italy where they just had an event on February 16th in Naples, a precursor, if you will, they will be organizing, they’re in Australia, they’re in New Zealand, they’re in the United States, they’re in Europe, in uk, in France, in Germany. They’re in, they’re in the, they’re in Afghanistan. Yeah, they’re in Afghanistan, they’re in the Middle East. They’re in Indonesia. They’re in India. They also are, and pay close attention in poorer and broken communities like in North Africa. They go where people will more likely follow them out of, in some cases, sheer need to survive. And that’s how communism grows. They promise you something better, and they give you a boogeyman and someone to blame. And sometimes those people are to blame, but the solution isn’t communism. They present a another view of the world that is anti autocracy in whether an Islamist nation or a dictatorial Latin American nation. And they offer the people the proletariat a way forward. 97 days, 16 hours, 42 minutes, and 36, 5, 4, 3. You get the idea seconds on June 10th, the World School of Communism, the founding of the new revolutionary Communist International, 15 sessions of revolutionary theory, watch parties on every continent. And yes, I will be watching part of it. And so will a number of others I’ve reached out to, to see what they develop, where they are. If you don’t study your enemy, you will not understand how to fight them. But the subtlety that they have developed, you have seen play out in our society. And while we sometimes have these shiny nickel arguments, and I’m not saying they’re not valid either, because they are DEI the new form of racism, uh, black Lives Matter, a Marxist organization, and so on the 1619 project, all these other ways within the country to break us up, well, we need to pay attention. And they’re growing and they’re effective. The Italian Communist Party is heavily behind what will happen in 97 days.

        Try Your Luck, Don’t Be A Cluck

        ben, the main point in my comment you’re replying to was to suggest what its header suggests; a strange-bedfellow clusterfuck.

        As for Marxism, maybe I’m wrong, but it just looks like yet another intellectual clusterfuck. Here’s some finger-food (my bold text of course):

        “As Marxism has developed over time into various branches and schools of thought, no single, definitive Marxist theory exists

        In addition to the schools of thought which emphasize or modify elements of classical Marxism, various Marxian concepts have been incorporated and adapted into a diverse array of social theories leading to widely varying conclusions. Alongside Marx’s critique of political economy, the defining characteristics of Marxism have often been described using the terms dialectical materialism and historical materialism, though these terms were coined after Marx’s death and their tenets have been challenged by some self-described Marxists…” ~ Wikipedia

        WTF clusterfuck. (Such as the so-called ‘Woke’ or ‘Left’ are using ‘it’.)

        Fits nicely with my comment’s take.

      Heather Heyer was killed by a man who drove like an Indy 500 professional. He rammed the car in front of him, and then backed up at high speed and got away. Someone took his picture, and it showed a strong jawed man, not wearing glasses, who looked to be in his 30s.

      An ex-employee of the Hillary Clinton State Dept, who had worked on the Kony 2012 psy op, just happened to be present at the scene, and was interviewed. He gave the official story (like the man on the scene on 9-11), and the official story was then spread all over the Mighty Wurlitzer, and lasts until this day.

      Later, and far away, the police arrested a autistic bespectacled young man, who looked like a teenager, and told us he was The One Who Dunnit.

        There’s a hideous ‘chiptune’ (it’s a genre that uses 8-bit sounds like old video games that I’m less crazy about) by minusbaby, called ‘Your Jaw Is Fit’. He may have made another one, or maybe changed the title, called, ‘Your Jaw Seems Fit’.

        Unsure what kind of workout one would do with a jaw to get it fit, or why one would want to, and so perhaps that’s the sarcasm behind the title(s) of the tune(s).

        Nevertheless, I don’t mind ‘Kicking Make-Believe Pebbles Into Cars’, where minusbaby has the digital drawing of a strong man with a tiny head in a pink Speedo apparently kicking make-believe pebbles into cars:

      Go ahead and take out the Kerch Bridge. Russians are fully capable of destroying any bridge in Europe at a moments notice. If Russian Intelligence determines the attack was carried out with German missiles, launched by German technicians, that would make Germany an active enemy. There are any number of measures Russia could take to even up the score.

      Unlike Stalin Putin is not murdering millions of his own people.
      It is rumored he is killing his opponents but after watching how our government and media lies about Trump non-stop I wouldn’t put it past them to lie about Putin.
      We had been hearing that he was ill, shaky, demented but his Tucker interview showed he was anything but that.

      I love my country but I am not in love with the current direction and people controlling it now.
      As Obama said we need fundamental change but away from his version of change with class warfare and a slow conversion to MARXISM and race hatred.

    I think its a very sensible and reasonable approach. Simply state your intention “I need to get off this train” and start living out that intention. I’m feeling the exact same way. To be honest with you, there are a lot of weird people on this train and some of them are insufferable and some have really terrible personal hygiene. So yeah, let’s bail!

    I just visted benjaminfulford.net and for some reason why does it seem like this guy write up a lot of fiction? I cannot for the life of me take anyone seriously if they are going to write stuff that sounds like fiction. One part of the site linked me to a giant laser beam firing down from space and blowing up vehicles and everything like a science fiction movie or some scary War Of The Worlds type shit. The title reads “Globalist Wage War On Americans.”

    And there was some article that said if Californians didn’t hand over their guns, we were going to be nuked. Now why would they threaten to nuke California over not handing over their guns? It would make more since if they threaten to nuke Red States for that. I don’t know it made me panic and shaky when I saw the video on youtube. When I searched my history it wasn’t there. When I looked up information on this strange laser beam attack, I couldn’t find any info of something like that actually happening. Instead I kept running into stuff about Putin having a Nuclear space weapon or whatever.

    • benr March 5, 2024 at 9:30 am #


      That “giant laser beam” is the DEW (directed energy weapon) OG is harping on and on about.
      The problem with all of this is just how massive the power requirements are to generate enough energy to produce a laser capable of this and how large the actual laser is.
      With current tech its not possible to put on any kind of satellite being shot from earth.

      The 20-petawatt Vulcan 20-20 is an £85m ($106m/€98m) upgrade on the existing Vulcan at the Central Laser Facility (CLF) in Harwell, Oxfordshire – which is being dismantled. Currently the size of two Olympic-sized swimming pools, its metre-wide mirrors weigh 1.5 tonnes (3,300lbs) apiece. Thick white wires snake out of the laser aperture, as the apparatus bends around the room. Considered state of the art when it was first built at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in 1997, the new laser will be 100 times brighter.
      The “impressive thing isn’t just the power, though, but rather the intensity of the laser”, says Rob Clarke, experimental science group leader at the CLF. To understand that intensity, imagine 500 million million standard 40W lightbulbs. Now “compress that light into something around a tenth of the size of a human hair”, he says. “The result of that is a very, very intense source of light, and it is this that creates all the fun plasma stuff such as huge electric and magnetic fields, [and] particle acceleration.”

      • stelmosfire March 5, 2024 at 10:02 am #

        Benr, your wasting your time trying to explain to the DEW crowd about this. They have no clue as to the scale of the energy involved. Same with the weather control bunch. They actually believe that the evil-doers can steer weather systems. The internet is loaded with them. Don’t even get me going on the chemtrail crazies.

      • TruthSeeker1986 March 5, 2024 at 12:11 pm #


        Well, that still doesn’t explain why they would post footage of such a weapon striking down and doing damage. What was the point of that, fear porn? And then some bullshit about them threatening to nuke California if the people wouldn’t hand over their weapons…I honestly hate bullshit articles like that. If people are going to make up dumb nonsense, they can at least be less dramatic about it…

            My Question:

            “Is there a psychological or mental illness where a person sees people as categories and has difficulty seeing people as people or as individuals?”

            ChatGPT’s Response:

            “There isn’t a specific mental disorder that is characterized solely by seeing people as categories rather than individuals. However, certain patterns of thought can be associated with various psychological conditions.

            For instance, individuals with certain personality disorders may struggle with empathy and understanding others’ perspectives. This could potentially lead to a tendency to categorize people based on their own perceptions or biases.

            It’s also worth noting that everyone categorizes to some extent as it’s a fundamental aspect of how our brains process information. It becomes problematic when it leads to stereotyping, prejudice, or discrimination.

            If you or someone else is experiencing this and it’s causing distress or difficulty in functioning, it would be beneficial to seek help from a mental health professional. They can provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan if necessary. Please note that this advice is general in nature, and individual health concerns may vary. Always consult with a healthcare provider for personal medical advice.”

    What no Hamas are the good guys fighting them evil JOOOooooOOOOO’S!

    UN Report: ‘Reasonable Grounds To Believe’ Hamas Members Sexually-Assaulted, Raped Abductees

    We did see the pictures of the one young lady being hustled off to a waiting jeep with a bleeding rear end and the next picture we saw of her she was obviously dead in the back of white truck.

    According to a team of United Nations (UN) delegates, during Hamas’ October 7th attack on Israel, there were “reasonable grounds to believe” that the terrorist group committed sexual violence, including rape and gang-rape.

    The report also claims to have discovered solid evidence supporting the assertion that sexual assault against Israeli hostages in Gaza has occurred and may still be occurring.

    The delegation, headed by UN special envoy Pramila Patten for sexual violence in conflict, traveled to Israel from January 29th to February 14th with the goal of compiling, examining, and confirming data on sexual assaults related to October 7th.

    “Credible circumstantial information, which may be indicative of some forms of sexual violence, including genital mutilation, sexualized torture, or cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment, was also gathered,” the 24-page UN report states.

    On October 7th, thousands of Hamas terrorists invaded Israel, killing at least 1,200 people and taking 253 hostages, most of whom were civilians and many of whom were subjected to horrifying acts of violence.

    “The mission team found clear and convincing information that some hostages taken to Gaza have been subjected to various forms of conflict-related sexual violence and has reasonable grounds to believe that such violence may be ongoing,” the UN report says.

    According to the report, a “fully-fledged investigation” will be necessary to determine the precise attribution, extent, and total size of the instances of sexual violence.

    Following October 7th, the UN team also claims to have received evidence regarding “sexual violence against Palestinian men and women in [Israeli] detention settings, during house raids, and at checkpoints” from institutional and civil society sources in addition to direct interviews.

    They continued, claiming that after bringing up the accusations with Israel’s Ministry of Justice and Military Advocate General, the UN group was purportedly informed that there had been no reports of sexual assault against Israeli Defense Force (IDF) personnel.

      Maybe now that we have it confirmed that yes this really did happen, we can work on the rest of the story.

      I notice that Alex Berenson has some of the same questions I have, and no one can accuse him of being anti-Israel or pro-Hamas either.

      It’s been almost five months and we still don’t know what is really going on:

      “The most troubling part of what’s happening in Gaza is that despite all the carnage, Israel doesn’t seem to have made meaningful progress toward destroying Hamas’s leadership or to have a plan to do so. It is failing at everything except causing misery and killing civilians…”

      We had the denial that this even happened at all, and we have had only a feeble and unbelievable piece from the NYT on how this was allowed to occur in the first place.

      The hordes of pro-Hamas “protestors in some of our major cities like NY and London appear perfectly capable of fighting, so why aren’t they in Gaza?

      This isn’t really about Israel versus Hamas, is it?

        The British turned Palestine over to the Jews. So there’s that.

        The British and the Americans are completely aligned with Israel, if not controlled by them. So the Palestinians don’t discriminate and are wise not to.

          • Socrates-Detroit March 6, 2024 at 10:28 am #


            Mearsheimer thinks so too, does he? He’s another credible source.

            Bingo! I agree, it’s likely to pave the way for a war with Iran.

            And that should make it easier for Israel to continue with the ethnic cleansing in Gaza, and accelerate it in the West Bank, by putting the spotlight on Lebanon and Iran.

            After all, the slaughter in Gaza is stale news–in general, not just here (though I like to bring to up, just to remind everyone it is happening).

            So, CFNers, if a wider war with Iran comes and if Iran successfully cripples or even sinks a US warship, what will be your reaction?

            Will you support the US government to escalate or intensify combat operations against Iran?

            Or will you support a withdrawal of US ships and planes for the area?

            Are you all going to be “good Americans” and rally behind our President who is fighting not just to keep the world safe, but even more importantly, to defend our special, parasitical, ally Israel?

            Of course defending Israel is more important than anything–and a crisis like that is not time for a divisive election, so perhaps the November elections will be held in abeyance.

            And if some of those 20 to 30-year old males (or even FEMALES) who have breached the southern border are actually trained commandos and cause various forms of mayhem–something as benign as blowing up a few railroad tracks or key highways or electric substation or gassing subways or public buildings can really have an outsize effect, then the government can justifiably implement martial law, right?

      UN Peacekeeping has a Sexual Abuse Problem

      Haiti is just one of many countries where peacekeepers have raped women and girls, or sexually exploited them in exchange for food or support. My colleagues have also reported on rape by African Union forces in Somalia, French and UN peacekeepers in Central African Republic and UN troops in the Democratic Republic of Congo. While the UN can investigate allegations of sexual abuse and rape, peacekeeper accountability is up to the country that sends the troops. As a result, prosecutions have been rare even after media coverage and outrage….

      For decades, desperate civilians have sought UN peacekeepers to alleviate some of the worst horrors of our times. Survivors of violence, displacement and poverty shouldn’t have to fear that those charged with protecting them will contribute to their suffering.” ~ Skye Wheeler, Human Rights Watch, hrw.org/news/2020/01/11/un-peacekeeping-has-sexual-abuse-problem

Getting bent out of shape over it is no better than gays throwing a fit when people mock them in comedy, and believe me. There use to be a time when Comedians poked fun of sensitive stuff and now they can’t do it anymore because the LBGTQ crowd or even Blacks will just witch hunt them for it.

      They use to tell racist jokes back in the day and everyone would just laugh. I never get offended by the stuff people say no matter how serious it is.

            Odd considering many people said the same thing about queer marriage.
            They even put a vote on the ballot to amend the California Constitution to say marriage was a between man and women.

            What did Proposition 8 change?
            Proposition 8 added language to the California Constitution that defined marriage as between one man and one woman. As the California Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage was legal in California on May 15, 2008, Proposition 8 had the effect of reversing the court’s ruling and banning same-sex marriage. In 2009, the California Supreme Court ruled that Proposition 8 “carved out a limited [or ‘narrow’] exception to the state equal protection clause” and prohibited same-sex marriage under the California Constitution.[1][2]

            When was Proposition 8 overturned?
            Proposition 8 was upheld under state constitutional law but not federal constitutional law. On August 4, 2010, U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Proposition 8 violated the U.S. Constitution.[3] However, the decision was stayed on appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and U.S. Supreme Court. The Ninth Circuit upheld the district court’s ruling to invalidate Proposition 8 on February 7, 2012. The U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal on June 26, 2013, and the Ninth Circuit permitted same-sex marriages to begin on June 28, 2013.[4]

            To my surprise the the Muslims and Mormons are not pushing to legalize multi-person marriages as those have been considered normal for thousands of years and in many cases so has the child bride scenarios.

            The Democrats want to lower the age of consent to something way below what it is now in every state and not to long ago in some states it was as low as 13.
            I believe that is the age of consent in at least China is 13 some countries as low as 12 and one country is puberty.
            I just looked it up on wikipedia and was shocked by how low some of these countries AOC actually is like Canada is pretty damn low.

      Anything in an American grocery store with a major brand name on it is poison.

      And I don’t say this lightly. In fact, many of these products are far worse than I ever thought possible. Sugar aside, the seed oils and chemicals (BHT and others) are surely the cause of many of the health problems in the general population.

      I have not eaten these products in about 20 years, but living in Germany has given me yet another perspective. Most of the more traditional foods here are nearly devoid of many of the ingredients one gets used to in the States.

      Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK) 293 is a cell line commonly used for BioPharma and Basic Medical research and therapeutic solutions. Generated in 1973, they are derived from human embryonic kidney cells and are popular, in part because of their reliable growth in culture and for their propensity for transfection.

      When you consume products that include “Natural flavours” in the Ingredients List, this is what you are getting: the kidney cells of a live fetus that was aborted immediately following their Roe v Wade victory.

        I do not. Definitely not based on this. I don’t find it plausible that they’d say “less than five months” if it were a false flag. Why bungle your own false flag?

        That’d be more like the opposite of a false flag (i.e. false promising something major will happen while, of course, it actually does not).

        It’s just timing is all. The White Hats are winning. The White Hats will win. IMHO, of course.

        • Blackbird March 5, 2024 at 7:36 pm #

          More false hope than false flag, in my opinion.

          I don’t see any evidence that these mysterious “White Hats” are winning. I only see the “Black Hat” project accelerating. Hopefully you are right and I am wrong.

          I hope it was a tasty hat – maybe one of those Tim Horton bread bowls? But I do like the way you stood behind your prediction instead of trying to squirm your way out.

          If we have an election this year… If the Hildebeast isn’t our last President… Well, those “predictions”* will go the way of my awesome, how-could-it-possibly-not-happen? 12/21/12 New Madrid Quake “prediction”.

          *Not really “predictions” but what I think is most likely to happen, not what absolutely will happen. I tend not to see things in stark black and white. And I tend to change my mind if I gather new, contradictory, information. But still, just in case, I’m fashioning myself a festive mango hat…

Also yesterday when Trump was discussing the Supreme Court ruling I am pretty sure he referred to himself as if he was the current President.

        Right. You are 100% correct. In fact, I do believe that President Trump has been the Commander-in-Chief the entire time and I do believe that much is happening behind the scenes.

        But I predicted a public inauguration for March 4 and, for that, I “eat my hat.”

          The best answer I can come up with is to starve the beast by disengaging from it. Gather together with like-minded people and attempt to build a much simpler, parallel society. But ultimately, I think even that is doomed. We won’t be allowed to live as free-range humans. However, until something better comes along, we might as well do something constructive.

    So the Event will be kicked off by a rogue AI, the perfect bond villain, either the AI itself will destroy critical infrastructure or our response to the AI will shutdown the entire infrastructure, long enough to kickoff the Purge.

    Support for the Krainer-Luongo thesis concerning the behind-the-scenes reality in the struggle between the USA and the European globalists comes through loud and clear in the most recent Judge Nap—Alastair Crooke interview.

    The whole interview is a must-watch, but to her Crooke’s explanation—which echos Luongo’s—specifically on the centrality of the issue of European war bonds and the EU using Ukraine as an excuse to strip EU countries of sovereignty, go to ca. 25:00 here:


    This theme is also central to the proposition that all of the s— currently hitting the fan in the Global North, the Five FUBARs— is about the globalists’ attempt to break up the USA. A very big piece of that is the configuration and control of global finance.

    Luongo explains it all pretty clearly in his recent interview with Mathew Ehret and Alex Krainer.

    Luongo is AFAIK a friend of this blog, so perhaps JHK should think about doing a podcast on this subject.

    The titular leader of all combined Haitian armed gangs calls himself ‘Barbecue’, which has to be the best street gangster name I’ve ever heard.

    1000 UN sponsored Kenyan soldiers are coming to restore order; Barbrcue, who leads a force of about 5000 well armed gunmen, vows he will wipe them out to the last man. I believe him as Barbecue appears to be a force to be reckoned with. I believe we are looking at the next Prime Minister. PM Barbecue.

      Depends on how “skilled” the Haitian gangs are up against the 1000 Kenyan soldiers. Him having 5000 men up against 1000 Kenyan soldiers don’t really mean shit. History has shown that large numbers don’t amount to anything if the other forces are better fighters than your large army of men.

      Although I don’t know why they are just sending in 1000 instead of 10,000 to overwhelm the 5000. But we shall see how this plays out…

      And Barbecue is the gayest fucking name….He must’ve been smoking some heavy stuff to come up with a dumb name like that. Reminds me of this one gang that called themselves The Depticons. I outright laughed my ass off. They were a Black New York street gang.

          Barbecue does speak French, GA. Video from today showed plenty of cars on fire too. But Barbecue seems like the kind of chap you wouldn’t find inside a burning car, but standing outside a car — full of passengers — and tossing a molotov cocktail into it.

        TS, Barbecue’s gang is armed with full auto FN & Colt M-16s & M-4s, which presumably they got from US stockpiles. Looks like they got plenty of ammo too. They’re fighting on home ground, they can lay down a lot of lead, and they seem highly motivated behind a charismatic leader (Barbecue) I think they’ll give a good account of themselves.

        • tucsonspur March 5, 2024 at 7:47 pm #

          Barbecue is pretty good for a street gang boss. Going higher up in the ranks(?), it’s tough to beat general Butt Naked leading the Naked Base Commandos. A really cool black, he liked killing children and eating human flesh.

          Charismatic leader, I don’t know, maybe a charismatic ‘feeder.’

          Well unless the U.S. is actually funding this, where did they get those weapons from?

          It wasn’t too long ago that Ecuador was also dealing with a crime wave after a cartel leader escaped prison and then they took over a news station before Law enforcement came in and took them down and they had explosives and still lost the fight. If I recall correctly MS-13 got it’s ass handed to them by the El Salvadorian leader… I find it insane how all these countries are facing similar crises. So far nothing like this is going on in the U.S. but unlike all these other countries. Loads of citizens got guns too, so these asshole thugs wouldn’t be able to just run wild picking off people like they are easy targets who can’t fight the fuckers back.

          Street thugs are also weak when they are challenged by an equally determined military force. I know nothing of Kenyan soldiers but this isn’t the movie Blood Diamond where volunteers get picked off by a bunch of thugs easily. So we’ll see if they got what it takes to restore order in Haiti. I’m pretty sure the Kenyan soldiers will have equally good weapons unless they go in there with crappy AK-47s.

            The US left guns when we pulled out of warzones like Afghanistan all those guns are winding up on the black market as are a lot of the guns sent into Ukraine.

        I think Barbecue is the perfect name for an ultraviolent Haitian thug gang leader. (Even better than the name of my rapper alter-ego: “White Chocolate”.) Not only does it bring up images of joyfully roasting meat, although sadly that meat may be human, and – briefly – still living, but it also has cultural and historic connotations, the word having originated in the Caribbean, most likely the island of Hispanola itself.

        He may indeed have gotten his hands on some primo Jamaican Lamb’s Bread ganja – I don’t think Haiti is known for good weed, or really, good anything…

    This may be a good sign. She had promised “nasty surprises” for Russians in the upcoming days before their election.

    I’m sure this is not what she had in mind. I’m guessing that they are just as happy as I am to see the last of her, at least in her current position. No, she clearly was referring to some sort of terrorist attack that would be bloody enough to make Russians not vote for Putin (in her delusions).

    I can only surmise that she proposed something so horrendous that it shocked the conscience of the ghouls at the State Dept. Not being a psychopath myself, I can’t imagine what would be evil enough to shock the likes of Anthony Blinken, but something made her decide, at age 62, to give up her cushy government-overthrowing job.

        Honking at all the girls
        It’s jack-of-all-trades Stan
        And Jerry the garbageman


        There they go
        The boys are really rollin’
        Some old lady called the cops
        Said the car is probably stolen, stolen

        There they go

    TALLINN, Estonia (AP) — When charismatic opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was gunned down on a bridge near the Kremlin in February 2015, more than 50,000 Muscovites expressed their shock and outrage the next day at the brazen assassination. Police stood aside as they rallied and chanted anti-government slogans.

    Nine years later, stunned and angry Russians streamed into the streets on the night of Feb. 16, when they heard that popular opposition politician Alexei Navalny had died in prison. But this time, those laying flowers at impromptu memorials in major cities were met by riot police, who arrested and dragged hundreds of them away.

    In those intervening years, Vladimir Putin’s Russia evolved from a country that tolerated some dissent to one that ruthlessly suppresses it. Arrests, trials and long prison terms — once rare — are commonplace, especially after Moscow invaded Ukraine.

    Alongside its political opponents, the Kremlin now also targets rights groups, independent media and other members of civil-society organizations, LGBTQ+ activists and certain religious affiliations.

    “Russia is no longer an authoritarian state -– it is a totalitarian state,” said Oleg Orlov, co-chair of Memorial, the Russian human rights group that tracks political prisoners. “All these repressions are aimed at suppressing any independent expression about Russia’s political system, about the actions of the authorities, or any independent civil activists.”

    A month after making that comment to The Associated Press, the 70-year-old Orlov became one of his group’s own statistics: He was handcuffed and hauled out of a courtroom after being convicted of criticizing the military over Ukraine and sentenced to 2½ years in prison.

    Memorial estimates there are nearly 680 political prisoners in Russia. Another group, OVD-Info, said in November that 1,141 people are behind bars on politically motivated charges, with over 400 others receiving other punishment and nearly 300 more under investigation.


    There was a time after the collapse of the Soviet Union when it seemed Russia had turned a page and widespread repression was a thing of the past, said Orlov, a human rights advocate since the 1980s.

    While there were isolated cases in the 1990s under President Boris Yeltsin, Orlov said major crackdowns began slowly after Putin came to power in 2000.

    Exiled oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who spent 10 years in prison after challenging Putin, told AP in a recent interview the Kremlin began stifling dissent even before his 2003 arrest. It purged independent TV channel NTV and went after other defiant oligarchs like Vladimir Gusinsky or Boris Berezovsky.

    Asked if he thought back then whether the crackdown would reach today’s scale of hundreds of political prisoners and prosecutions, Khodorkovsky said: “I rather thought he (Putin) would snap earlier.”

    When Nadya Tolokonnikova and her fellow members of Pussy Riot were arrested in 2012 for performing an anti-Putin song in a main Orthodox cathedral in Moscow, their two-year prison sentence came as a shock, she recalled in an interview.

    “Back then, it seemed an incredibly (long prison) term. I couldn’t even imagine that I would ever get out,” she said.


    When Putin regained the presidency in 2012 after evading term limits by serving four years as prime minister, he was greeted by mass protests. He saw these as Western-inspired and wanted to nip them in the bud, said Tatiana Stanovaya of Carnegie Russia Eurasia Center.

    Many were arrested, and over a dozen received up to four years in prison after those protests. But mostly, Stanovaya said, authorities were “creating conditions in which the opposition could not thrive,” rather than dismantling it.

    A flurry of laws followed that tightened regulations on protests, gave broad powers to authorities to block websites and surveil users online. They slapped the restrictive label of “foreign agent” on groups to weed out what the Kremlin saw as harmful outside influence fueling dissent.

    Navalny in 2013-14 was convicted twice of embezzlement and fraud, but received suspended sentences. His brother was imprisoned in what was seen as a move to pressure the opposition leader.

    Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 from Ukraine created a surge of patriotism and boosted Putin’s popularity, emboldening the Kremlin. Authorities restricted foreign-funded nongovernmental organizations and rights groups, outlawing some as “undesirable,” and targeted online critics with prosecutions, fines and occasionally jail.

    In the meantime, the tolerance for protests grew thinner. Demonstrations spearheaded by Navalny in 2016-17 brought hundreds of arrests; mass rallies in summer 2019 saw another handful of demonstrators convicted and imprisoned.

    The Kremlin used the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 as an excuse to ban protests. To this day, authorities often refuse to allow rallies, citing “coronavirus restrictions.”

    After Navalny’s poisoning, recuperation in Germany and arrest upon his return to Russia in 2021, repressions intensified. His entire political infrastructure was outlawed as extremist, exposing his allies and supporters to prosecution.

    Open Russia, an opposition group backed from abroad by Khodorkovsky, also had to shut down, and its leader, Andrei Pivovarov, was arrested.

    Orlov’s group Memorial was shut down by the Supreme Court in 2021, the year before it won the Nobel Peace Prize as the hopeful symbol of a post-Soviet Russia. He recalled the disbelief about the court’s ruling.

    “We couldn’t imagine all these next stages of the spiral, that the war would erupt, and all those laws about discrediting the army will be adopted,” he said.


    With the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, Russia enacted those repressive new laws that stifled any anti-war protests and criticism of the military. The number of arrests, criminal cases and trials mushroomed.

    Charges varied — from donating money to rights groups helping Ukraine to involvement with Navalny’s now “extremist” group.

    Kremlin critics were imprisoned, and their prominence didn’t seem to matter. Navalny eventually got 19 years, while another opposition foe, Vladimir Kara-Murza, got the harshest sentence of 25 years for treason.

    Among those also swept up was a St. Petersburg artist got seven years for replacing supermarket price tags with anti-war slogans; two Moscow poets got five and seven years for reciting antiwar verses in public; and a 72-year-old woman got 5½ years for two social media posts against the war.

    Activists say prison sentences have gotten longer, compared with those before the war. Increasingly, authorities have appealed convictions that resulted in lighter punishment. In Orlov’

    Another trend is an increase in trials in absentia, said Damir Gainutdinov, head of the Net Freedoms rights group. It counted 243 criminal cases on charges of “spreading false information” about the military, and 88 of them were against people outside Russia — including 20 who were convicted in absentia.

    Independent news sites were largely blocked. Many moved their newsrooms abroad, like the independent TV channel Dozhd or Novaya Gazeta, with their work available to Russians via VPNs.

    At the same time, the Kremlin expanded a decade-long crackdown against Russia’s LGBTQ+ community in what officials said was a fight for “traditional values” espoused by the Russian Orthodox Church in the face of the West’s “degrading” influence. Last year, declared the LGBTQ+ “movement” extremist and banned gender transitioning.

    Pressure on religious groups continued, too, with hundreds of Jehovah’s Witnesses being prosecuted across Russia since 2017, when the denomination was declared extremist.

    The system of oppression is designed “to keep people in fear,” said Nikolay Petrov, visiting researcher at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs.

    It doesn’t always work. Last week, thousands of people defied scores of riot police to mourn Navalny at his funeral in southeastern Moscow, chanting “No to war!” and “Russia without Putin!” — slogans that normally would result in arrests.

    This time, police uncharacteristically did not interfere.


    I can understand imposing limits on the LGBTQ+ community and such. As for the rest, it screams totalitarianism.

    • JohnAZ March 6, 2024 at 9:03 am #

      LGBTQ+ needs to be tolerated and NEVER encouraged by allowing advocates to have access to children.

      Your assessment of the state of tolerance in Russia is spot on.

      It is also a good assessment of the sort of thing going on right here in the USA. Jan.6 has resulted in an attempt by the Putinized Deep State to suppress opposition by MAGA, Protests violently put down after Liberal politicians encouraged the crowd with inaction, habeas corpus halted and quick trials stopped. Overly long sentences invoked, House kangaroo court held, a total fiasco, bogus trials across the USA by a political party to GET Trump. About the only thing left is to assassinate him.

      Something about mirrors and glass houses here.

      The entire world is moving toward totalitarianism, including us. Maybe we better fix ourselves before complaining about anyone else.

      Spur, Russian leadership has always been heavy handed, from back in the days of Ivan the terrible, thru the Czars, all the way up to Stalin. That’s what it might take to run the largest landmass on earth. I hear what you’re saying about totalitarianism but Russia is never going to be a Jeffersonian democracy. Compared to rulers in the 1000 years Putin is a lightweight.

        He’s probably not trying to run things like they did before. Don’t know, but I agree with John on the whole the entire world is moving right into the same direction…. I thought these Globalist would be dealt with by now. On top of it all, I’ve been talking to a guy from Ecuador and he doesn’t believe that stuff will get as bad as everyone here seems. For starters he doesn’t believe Trump will get assassinated. I mentioned it to him and just laughs about it “That’s not going to happen.” He didn’t even believe the vax are killing people either.

        • BackRowHeckler March 6, 2024 at 11:05 am #

          It’s good to get other perspectives, TS. That’s why on this site I like reading posts by Green Alba & Night Owl (and others) Gives you a look at things from overseas.

          • TruthSeeker1986 March 6, 2024 at 11:34 am #

            It does, but at the same time I feel that a lot of the people I speak with from abroad just don’t realize how serious everything is right now. I don’t know if Trump is going to get it, but I read about a lot of assassination attempts in this country. A lot of them were failures though.

            It just seems like if Trump thought or had any reason to believe he was in any kind of danger. Why not get himself some protection? I’m sure he can still afford it despite what they are doing to cripple him financially.

            Or maybe he just doesn’t sense or feel that they will go that far to get rid of him. As for the Vax situation, only a fool would deny that there isn’t proof of it killing people. The moment people took that stuff, you had a lot of young people dying, athletes dropping dead, etc. These people were all mostly healthy and ended up getting sick, injuries and then just dying entirely. I think when a person is in denial of something they are usually in denial because of fear, don’t want to admit the truth to something so they write it off as a conspiracy theory. A lot of people do this.

            How many people can dance on the head of a pin?

            Not even one.


            Because a person is so much larger than the head of a pin.

        • JohnAZ March 6, 2024 at 12:37 pm #


          Think about this.

          The Vaxx killed more people with its inflammatory response than Covid itself did. This is a fact that no one seems to want to confront.

          On the globalist issue, you have to realize that the Great Reset/New World Order plan goes back many decades.

          I know this fight will continue for the rest of my natural life, and I ain’t that old yet.

          We aren’t even out of phase I yet. The Covid Hoax was a test balloon to see how far they could push, and it was rushed due to rising populism in the US and Europe.

          They largely failed on many levels, but they did get many to inject poison and start to accept inversion.

          The run up to 2030 is critical.

      No, we care more about an unpopular (9% approval rating – vs. 57% disapproval – among Russian citizens as recently as last year) Covid-Vaxxed neo-Nazi criminal who died of a blood clot (according to Ukrainian Intelligence Chief Kirill Budanov) in prison. Sure, Putin is going to kill him a month before the election. Oh yeah, I forgot, Putin is stupid – and he has small hands!

    In Haiti, much of the same. The countries’ police academy was assaulted, and after a fierce firefight, appears to have been repelled. The airport, which is inoperative, is surrounded. Haiti’s PM flew back from Kenya, landed in NJ, and now is in Puerto Rico. It turns out at least 5000 inmates were busted out of two prisons, many of them violent felons. Field Commander ‘Barbecue’ has threatened genocide if the PM, who was not elected but appointed when the last PM was assassinated, attempts to return. Biden has promised funds, but who would handle the funds since no government exists? All in all, a sorry state of affairs.

    • TruthSeeker1986 March 6, 2024 at 10:14 am #


      Biden…..this guy is always dolling out “funds” somewhere. So I guess Haiti is finished forever, their best bet is to send in a few choppers and rain hell down on the fuckers, maybe drop some bombs on them. That would put an end to Barbecue. With our borders open, and if they are even aware of it. They could just flood into the U.S. right now. But Barbecue wouldn’t be able to take over America like that. lol he would get his ass kicked by other blacks who are armed who wouldn’t sit by and just let one negro hog all the glory.

        Sounds nice to me. As for the images, personally, for the interior, I might have gone with a lighter stain on the wood and a few changes here and there, but the AI has its own mind and I ran out of time to bend to my will. It’s very hit-and-miss with mostly miss and the AI really just seems to be shuffling through what it already knows, rather than creating more of a new synthesis. In any case, kind of insightful the effort WRT how the AI might be regarding this.

        Also, malthuss, upthread, is having link problems, so it’s good that they are working on your end, at least these links.

            Yeah so like basically it is everything you don’t want to manifest in the image. So like a negative prompt for your image could be dark stained wood. The AI will then produce more images without that than with. But in your regular prompt just be sure to also include light stained wood.

    New Anti-SEMITISM: If you oppose genocide, you are now labeled an anti-Semite


    To be antisemitic is to be hostile or prejudiced against Jewish people. Since the initial attack of Hamas in Gaza that invited a violent retaliation from the Israelis, the definition of antisemitism has evolved into something else. Those who condemn the counterattack and the massive genocide by the Jews of the Palestinian people are now labeled as antisemite.

    Orwell was brilliant. He was bang on about words morphing to be used to control thought. Bang on.

    • SoftStarLight March 6, 2024 at 12:03 pm #

      At their roots aren’t all words essentially instruments of thought control? After all, words are assignments we give things in the world so that we can communicate with one another about the world. So a word is sorta a control mechanism to label and simplify or categorize and organize things. And there are powers in words.

      Let me help you. If someone calls me an anti-Semite I will ask that person or persons who exactly identifies as a Semite. Where is the Semite community? What is the Semite language? What are the perimeters of Semite culture? We need to stimulate thinking in people. Because we live in a mechanized society that is based on immediacy many people never stop to think. And words are thought bubbles so when words are invoked thoughts need to be invoked.

      • OG March 6, 2024 at 12:16 pm #

        You’re right but it is when the words are morphed to an agenda where it gets nefarious.

        Orwell spoke of Newspeak where the mandate is to reduce the number of words in the language. This further limits the scope of thought. A healthy language in a healthy society is always growing.

        High-jacking Anti-Semitism to now mean anyone who opposes the Israeli government’s actions (no matter how heinous), is Orwellian. People have been trained for almost a century that Anti-Semitics must hang and, therefore, it’s pretty concerning when they start morphing its meaning.

        Let me help you. 88% of Americans are clueless. Having a conversation with them vis-à-vis the Middle East is like discussing it with a cat.

        • SoftStarLight March 6, 2024 at 1:06 pm #

          And so my question to you is why do you give them so much power? Power is not simply something wielded. It is also something that you must buy into. So let me share my American cat thought with you to possibly assist you in understanding. I don’t care about their dumb word and their dumb word does not mean anything to me. Now, perhaps you should adopt the same North Star. If everyone did they would lose the power that has been bestowed upon them.

          • SoftStarLight March 6, 2024 at 1:08 pm #

            And if you want to get really Old Testament wilderness American then we could simply sow their mouths up to prevent words from being uttered. I think ignoring and laughing and depowering is an easier task but you let me know what your thoughts are.

          • SoftStarLight March 6, 2024 at 1:10 pm #

          • OG March 6, 2024 at 10:27 pm #

            The problem is not my wanting Anti-Semitic to retain its actual meaning. The problem is the Orwellians morphing its meaning to their genocidal agenda.

          • SoftStarLight March 7, 2024 at 12:51 am #

            Oh yeah, I totally agree.

      • Blackbird March 6, 2024 at 7:35 pm #

        Who is a Semite? Everyone native to the lands east of Egypt, south of Turkey, and west of Iran. Most Israelis, being of largely European and/or Turkic stock, aren’t. But…

        But someone who hates Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Arabs, Phoenicians, or Babylonians is never labeled an “anti-Semite”.

        Yes, words are instruments of thought control. That is why it is so important to defend their meaning and keep it from being stretched and twisted.

        • SoftStarLight March 7, 2024 at 12:55 am #

          Yes, and that also reinforces my feeling that being called an anti-Semite is a made up idea in the context it is used in most often. So just don’t allow your thoughts to be controlled.

    • Jarek March 6, 2024 at 12:45 pm #

    A few comments on the Five Fubars. Lawfare, the economy and the border are three issues that are obviously huge problems that clearly need serious attention. I’m more ambivalent on Ukraine, since the Ukrainians definitely don’t want to be under Russian domination. After two years of what some initially thought would take Russia two weeks, US aid to Ukraine is now evaporating making us look like imbecilic, feckless strategists. The moral issue becomes moot.

    The US has nukes on NATO bases in Europe including Germany, and France and Great Britain have their own. Too bad the Germans couldn’t blow the Kerch bridge anonymously. Push that pathetic, parricidal, pompous little prick of a poltroon Putin into the pantheon of the pusillanimous. I’m tired of his saber rattling, along with that of the fat fuck Lukashenko. Yeah, right, I’m sure his cadre of billionaire thugs want to be irradiated and incinerated. So, shrivel his nuts, make him slink to the bargaining table. But we won’t, so Fubar it is.

    As weary as I am of the covid topic, conscience demands a response. Yes, there were lies and terrible mandates, and many people were injured by the vaccine, but it killed millions of Americans and millions more around the world? What about the six and one half billion people who were vaccinated and are still doing okay? When is it that they’re going to drop dead? Tomorrow, next week, month, year, Septuagesima Sunday in 2063? Okay, maybe a fractional Fubar.

    ‘Corporate medicine — that is, your doctor, and your hospitals — is a sinking Titanic of grift and chaos. Try to get an appointment to even see a doctor for an emergency. Try to avoid being bankrupted by your treatment. Try to get out of a hospital alive. Yeah, it’s that bad.’ The inimitable JHK. No quibble on this one. Absolutely correct, crushes the caduceus.

    It was super Tuesday alright, a Tuesday full of tenacious, truculent, triumphant Trump. Sound the trumpets! Karl Rove says that the Republicans are in a dangerous state of disunity heading into the election, which is apparently true.

    Rhinos and vultures. Vixen Nikki Haley, among other things, vivifies the vulture group waiting to pick on Trump’s bones, strutting and preening about, her long boniness revealing the fact that she is certainly not callipygous.

    Be that as it may, Trump’s train is barreling down the track, gaining momentum, as the Left sets up their signalmen for derailment. Oh, you can be sure of it, with hundreds if not thousands of trackmen rigging the rails.

    However, to coin a phrase, there is light at the tunnel’s end. It now actually seems possible. Trump as the Phoenix, his rectrices guiding his rise into a resplendent redemption.
